In the wake of unsettled weather this week, ample sunshine is forecast for the Pittsburgh area both days of the weekend.

Cool and clammy air that moved into much of the mid-Atlantic Wednesday to Thursday will dissolve moving into the weekend.

Some locations around Pittsburgh may start the day with low clouds on Friday, but the push of Atlantic moisture is running out of steam.
