    Pittsburgh: Warm Surge to Last Through Midweek

    By By Kevin Byrne, AccuWeather.com Meteorologist

    Above-average temperatures are expected to last through Wednesday in Pittsburgh.

    Sunshine will dominate the early part of the week, as highs through Wednesday will be in the mid-80s. Normal highs are right around 80 F this time of year.

    Humidity will also increase toward midweek, which will create even higher AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures.

    A break in the sunny weather will come on Wednesday as a shower or thunderstorm will develop later in the afternoon. The threat for storms is expected to remain in the evening hours.

    The Pittsburgh Pirates will continue a three-game series against the St. Louis Cardinals Tuesday at 7:05 p.m. EDT. Fans heading to PNC Park should have good weather for baseball, although Wednesday's 12:35 p.m. game could be impacted by storms later in the afternoon.
