Saturday was definitely the nicer of the two weekend days with thunderstorms in the forecast for Sunday.

Sunday morning will be the better time for outdoor plans around the Pittsburgh area for the second half of the weekend.

Sunday afternoon, showers and thunderstorms will begin to rumble and cause those plans to be moved indoors or delayed.

This includes the game between the Pirates and the Milwaukee Brewers Sunday afternoon at PNC Park.

There is concern for some of the thunderstorms to become heavy and gusty. Incidents of small hail cannot be ruled out.

Even less-intense thunderstorms should not be taken lightly. Remember, you are close enough to be struck by lighting if you hear thunder.

Setting the stage for Sunday's afternoon thunderstorms is the warm and more humid air that will boost temperatures to the upper 70s. A quick drop in temperatures will occur as any thunderstorm passes through.

The storminess will not end with the weekend but will instead persist into Monday.

A dry Tuesday will follow before more stormy days unfold from Wednesday through Friday.
