In the wake of heavy rain, localized flooding and strong thunderstorms, much less intense rainfall is in store for Pittsburgh this weekend.
While departure of heavy rain is good news for those living along small streams, shower activity this weekend can be enough to disrupt outdoor plans ranging from weddings and graduations to ball games and outings.
Temperatures will be cooler than average this weekend with highs forecast to range from the upper 50s to the lower 60s.
According to Meteorologist Erik Pindrock, "Over the high ground of western Pennsylvania, it can get cold enough to allow some wet snowflakes to mix in Saturday morning."
Nighttime lows will generally be above frosty levels, but there is a chance of a light frost in the normally cold spots Sunday night, where skies become clear and winds diminish. So, if you planted your tomatoes, peppers and impatiens during the recent warm weather, you may need to protect them Sunday night as a precaution. No other threats of frost are foreseen through the end of May.
Temperatures are forecast to trend upward next week but the potential for drenching downpours and thunderstorms will return by Wednesday.
