    In the wake of drenching rainfall on the East coast, spotty showers and cool air are in store for Pittsburgh, through the weekend.

    The large storm system responsible for the rainfall this past week was located hundreds of miles to the west, over the Great Lakes.

    The storm is forecast to weaken slowly and wander eastward into early next week.

    As this happens it will push the plume of Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean moisture off to the east. However, a zone of cool air and spotty, light showers will settle into the region.

    Daytime highs through Sunday will be within a few degrees of 60 F.

    Temperatures for the start of the marathon Sunday morning will be middle 40s. Brisk winds are in the offing for the race, averaging from the west and northwest at 10 to 20 mph.

    The average high temperature for this time of the year is in the upper 60s.

    Very warm weather may attempt to break into the region for a few days later next week, unless a zone of clouds, showers and thunderstorms develops nearby.
