Temperatures will average near to above normal through much of the coming weekend around Pittsburgh.

High temperatures for the remainder of the week will range from the lower 60s to near 70 degrees.

The typical high for the city during early April is 57 F.

The week will not be entirely free of rain, however.

As a front moves to the east on Wednesday, temperatures will dip slightly and a couple of showers are in the offing.

Rounds of rain are forecast Thursday into Friday.

There is a chance that severe thunderstorms from the Midwest will survive the trip to the region on Friday.
