Those in the Pittsburgh region who are craving some fresh air should make their outdoor plans for today and Monday.
Lee Hendricks, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service at Pittsburgh, said there's no rain in the forecast until Tuesday and temperatures will be temperate.
But, as the thermostat rises, the rain will come.
In fact, rain is expected Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday with Friday seeing a drop in temperatures to a high in the mid-50s with lows over next weekend in the mid-30s.
"Welcome to spring," Mr. Hendricks commented, noting that these fluctuations are typical for Pittsburgh at this time of year.
Today's high will be in the lower 60s with an overnight low in the mid-40s. Monday will feature partial sun with a high in the lower 70s and low in the mid-50s.
High temperatures will remain in the lower 70s on Tuesday and Wednesday, climbing to the upper-70s on Wednesday and Thursday with showers and thunderstorms expected each day.
The rain is predicted to continue on Friday but temperatures will drop. The high will be in the mid-50s with a low in the mid-30s on Friday and Saturday.
