    Pittsburgh: Storms Threaten to Ruin Weekend Plans

    Showers and thunderstorms threaten to ruin outdoor plans around Pittsburgh through the weekend.

    While rain grazes the Northeast coast, showers and thunderstorms will continue to rattle the central Appalachians through Sunday.

    Residents should prepare for disruptions to outdoor activities. Remember that you are close enough to be struck by lightning if you hear thunder.

    The abundance of clouds will hold temperatures to the upper 70s, which is a few degrees below normal. While summer heat will be absent, humid conditions will not be.

    Beyond the weekend, plenty of sunshine will return for Monday as temperatures rebound into the lower 80s. Patchy fog, however, threatens to slow down travelers in the morning.

    The return of a shower or thunderstorm will come on Tuesday as Bertha will be steered away from the East Coast.
