National Weather Service forecast.

Here come April’s showers.

The National Weather Service in Moon has issued a hazardous weather outlook — including severe thunderstorms, wind gusts, heavy rainfall and possible tornadoes — for several Eastern U.S. states starting Sunday and lasting through late next week.

In Pittsburgh, NWS is calling for up to an inch and a half of rain by Sunday night, with wind gusts reaching 29 mph during the day. The high is predicted near 74 degrees and the low around 42.

Rain is expected to continue falling Monday through 2 p.m. along with the temperature, which is predicted to plunge down to a high of 48.

The skies will clear Tuesday and Wednesday with temperatures expected in the 60s and 70s, but then rain and thunderstorms could return Thursday afternoon.

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.
