    Severe Weather Risk for Pittsburgh Into Tuesday Evening

    By By Kristina Pydynowski, senior meteorologist

    Pittsburgh will be faced with a couple of rounds of severe weather into Tuesday evening.

    A surge of warm and humid air following the holiday weekend will set the stage for severe thunderstorms.

    The afternoon and evening hours are when the strongest thunderstorms will rumble and threaten to cause some damage and hazards to residents.

    Powerful wind gusts are the main hazard with the strongest storms through Tuesday. A small number of the storms can also bring hail and flash flooding.

    Any thunderstorm each day can also produce frequent lightning. Remember, you are close enough to get struck by lightning if you hear thunder.

    After a lingering shower or thunderstorm Wednesday morning, humidity will lower in the afternoon as drier air works into western Pennsylvania.
