In addition to warm weather into the end of the week, the Pittsburgh area will be on the fringe of severe weather from the Midwest.

High temperatures on Friday will be near 70 F.

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

Rounds of heavy rain and severe thunderstorms will target areas to the Midwest through Friday.

As these storms move eastward they will weaken, but periods of rain are in store locally into Friday. There is the chance of locally heavy, gusty thunderstorms reaching the area during the day Friday.

The weekend will be cooler with spotty showers and a brisk wind on Saturday. Sunday will be the nicer of the two days with little wind, some sunshine and rebounding temperatures.
