Western Pennsylvania got a taste of what was last week when temperatures soared into the low 80s for several days.

Like this weekend, today will be a taste of what’s to come.

Monday’s expected high temperature of 62 degrees will be relatively balmy compared to the remainder of the week, which won’t make it past 50 degrees until Friday.

There will be rain showers and patchy fog today turning to mostly cloudy skies overnight and a drop in temperature to a low of 36 degrees. Winds from the west will range between 8 and 11 mph with gusts as high as 22 mph, according to the National Weather Service in Moon Township.

Tuesday will be mostly sunny with a high of 51 degrees before turning cloudy overnight with low of 42 degrees.

Wednesday will be partly sunny with a high around 49 degrees and then dip down to 36 degrees overnight.

Thursday should be a near repeat — sunny, high near 50 and a low of 36 overnight.

The temperature will creep up to 56 degrees on Friday with a chance of showers and set the stage for the weekend.

Saturday’s forecast calls for a high near 54 degrees and an overnight low around 39. Sunday will be partly sunny with a high near 48.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
