Pittsburgh will see some rain and cooler weather early this week as a cold front approaches, bringing a rainy start for morning commuters Tuesday.
“The sun might return by the afternoon,” AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Brian Edwards said.
Throughout the day Tuesday, it will remain breezy and cool with temperatures hovering around normal for this time of year in the low 60s.
“It will be an even cooler day on Wednesday as high pressure moves in,” Edwards said, adding it will be drier throughout the workweek.
It will be partly sunny, with a gusty northwest wind and temperatures in the mid-50s.
By Thursday, temperatures will rebound into the mid-60s.
“It will be mostly sunny Thursday and then we will see temperatures get back into the 70s Friday,” he said.
The next chance for rain will come on Friday as a chance for some passing showers and thunderstorms moves through, Edwards.
