Morning showers will give way to sunny afternoon, another warm day

After some scattered morning showers, it will be another warm and sunny day in the Pittsburgh area, according to the National Weather Service.

The rain is fairly light and diminishing as it moves east, meteorologist Bill Modzelewski said. It will be out of the Pittsburgh area by 10 or 11 a.m. at the latest.

Skies will clear for some sunshine in the afternoon, and the temperature is expected to reach a high of 79, he said.

“After we get the rain out of here this morning, it should be a pretty nice day,” Modzelewski said.

After a dry afternoon, isolated rain could return after 8 or 9 p.m. and there could be some scattered showers after midnight.

Wednesday was the warmest day of the year so far, with a high of 85, Modzelewski said. The record high of 93 set in 1942 still stands.

It won’t be any warmer over the next seven days or so. Highs are expected to be in the mid-70s on Friday, the upper 60s over the weekend and rise back into the 70s next week.

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.
