Rain from a coastal storm was barely brushing Pittsburgh Friday.

Most areas west of I-79 will stay dry through Sunday morning.

For folks heading eastward along the Turnpike, I-68, I-70 and I-80, they are likely to encounter locally heavy rain and areas of fog.

Torrential rain Thursday into Friday has caused flooding problems around Harrisburg, York and Lancaster, Pa.

There is a chance of spotty thunderstorms drifting eastward across Ohio Sunday afternoon. If so, these could reach Pittsburgh, before diminishing Sunday night.

With the big rain staying to the east and clouds breaking at times, temperatures will average slightly above normal each day through Sunday. Highs most days will be in the 70s into next week. Normal high temperatures are in the low to middle 60s.
