Warm air that has been pent up over the Plains much of this past week has made the trip to Pittsburgh and will stick around into early next week.

The pattern will bring high temperatures in the 80s most days through Tuesday.

While there will be long episodes of rain-free weather, the pattern can also deliver a few disruptive downpours.

While some dry air will mix down from aloft and allow more in the way of sunshine on Mother's Day, it may not be enough to prevent spotty, pop-up thunderstorms from developing during the afternoon and evening.

Cooler air is projected to move in at midweek.
