    Wet Week Shaping Up For Pittsburgh

    Following a dry end to the weekend, rain made a return to Pittsburgh on Monday.

    This rain is expected to linger around the city through much of the week, threatening to put a damper on or ruin outdoor activities.

    A gusty breeze and a thunderstorm will accompany the rain on Tuesday. Even though Tuesday's thunderstorm will not turn severe, be sure to seek shelter as soon as thunder is heard. You are then close enough to be struck by lightning.

    Heavier periods of rain and thunderstorms will follow for Wednesday, heightening concerns for flash flooding.

    Despite the rain and thunderstorms, the door will open for warmer air to pour in on Wednesday and boost temperatures to the 70s.

    Cooler air will quickly filter back into the area later in the week as a shower or two lingers.
