The Pittsburgh region will get a taste of summer this week, but spring will be back by the weekend.

Air flowing from the southwest will bring temperatures in the 80s for Wednesday, followed by ones in the upper-70s on Thursday and mid-70s on Friday, according to Tom Green, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Moon.

Cloudy skies with off-and-on rain are expected, with the potential for heavier rain Wednesday.

Normal highs for this time of year run in the mid-60s.

The region is squarely in springtime, though Green said some projections show that we could be in for a slightly warmer and wetter May.

Stay vigilant with your garden: Nighttime lows are expected to be in the 40s this week, Green said.

Looking ahead to Sunday’s Pittsburgh Marathon, runners should be prepared for a 20% to 30% chance of rain.

Temperatures are expected to be in the low-50s around 7 a.m., warming up to the mid-60s by noon.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com 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.
