A cooler, but dry Sunday will precede a wet week in the Pittsburgh area.
Cool, dry air will settle into the area on Sunday as a high pressure system builds into the region.
Temperatures will briefly reach the lower 60s late Sunday afternoon, but they will be in the 50s for much of the day. Despite the cooler air, winds will be noticeably lighter in comparison to Saturday.
No weather-related travel issues should be expected Sunday, but that will change for the upcoming week.
Dry weather should last into the Monday morning commute in the city, but rain will arrive by the afternoon as the leading edge of a large, slow-moving storm moves in. The commute home Monday evening will be a wetter, slower one. Motorists can expect slippery wet roads and reduced visibility.
That storm has the potential to bring rounds of soaking rain, locally strong thunderstorms and cool conditions over several days. In other words, the weather for much of the upcoming week has the potential to be a real annoyance for those with outdoor plans.
