Play video Weather across the Northeast is discussed in the above AccuWeather.com video.

While residents will face more disruptions to outdoor activities on Saturday, dry air will push southward across Pittsburgh to end the weekend.

Yet another day of a shower or thunderstorm crossing Pittsburgh is shaping up for Saturday, forcing some outdoor plans or sporting events to be delayed or moved indoors.

Southwestern Pennsylvania will escape an all-day rain event. The showers and thunderstorms will instead occasionally move through the area.

While some may not mind getting wet for a time, residents should remember to seek shelter as soon as thunder is heard. You are then close enough to be struck by lightning.

There will even be breaks of sunshine, allowing temperatures to rise into the lower 80s. AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures will exceed actual temperatures due to higher humidity.

As dry air presses southward, rain chances will be gone from Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Sunday will definitely be the better half of the weekend for outdoor activities and sporting events.

During next week, there are signs of some warmer weather for a few days. Temperatures will soar back into the middle 80s.
