Pittsburghers awoke today to a rumbling sky and showers, and the National Weather Service forecast called for possible heavy rain and severe storms later in the day.

A line of thunderstorms moved through the area around 6:30 a.m. with more storms tracking toward the district from the west.

No watches or warnings were in effect as of 7 a.m. but the weather service said severe storms could arrive later today with rainfall up to 1.5 inches.

The longer-term forecast did not provide much relief, with thunderstorms possible through Sunday. Today's high was expected to be in the mid-80s.

Last night’s storms brought hail and knocked down numerous trees in Venango, Mercer, Jefferson, Indiana and Clarion counties, according to the weather service.
