A couple of rounds of rain will affect the Pittsburgh area before the end of the week.

On and off rain will continue across the area into Thursday evening. A weak storm moving northeastward along a front will contribute to the wet weather.

While there can be enough rain to cause minor travel disruptions and typical flooding in poor drainage areas, not enough rain will fall to cause widespread flash and small stream flooding.

Rainfall in most cases will be under a half of an inch.

After seasonable temperatures this weekend, progressively colder air seems likely for next week that could yield some of the first snowflakes of the season.
