    Pittsburgh: Flood Risk to Ahead of Much Cooler Air

    By By Alex Sosnowski, senior meteorologist

    A zone of very drenching rain will push slowly eastward across into Thursday night across the Pittsburgh area.

    The rainfall has the potential to bring flash, urban and small stream flooding, especially to areas around and north and east of the city through the Laurel Highlands.

    Much cooler air will be felt beginning late Thursday night as a front pushes off to the east.

    The passage of this front will mark the end of the risk of severe weather and flash flood threat, but not the end for shower activity through the weekend.

    A storm in the upper atmosphere and the associated chilly air will allow a mosaic of showers to develop each day Friday through Monday.

    While it may not rain much each day, it can rain just enough to cause disruptions to outdoor projects and activities.

    Cloud cover and a breeze should prevent temperatures from dipping to frosty levels in the upcoming pattern.
