Pittsburgh region to stay wet over the next few days

Emily Balser

Commuters are in for a soggy drive Monday morning as two storm systems settle over the area.

“Right around 5 a.m. to about 8 a.m., we could see some pretty heavy rain showers maybe some thunderstorms,” said John Darnley, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Moon Township.

Areas south of Pittsburgh could see about about a quarter of an inch of rain while areas north of Pittsburgh could see closer to a half-inch.

The region will likely continue to see showers each day through Wednesday reaching a rain total of about 2 inches from Sunday through Wednesday.

Darnley said he doesn’t expect any flooding unless a particularly heavy storm blows through.

“I don’t think we’re going to be in too much trouble,” he said.

Temperatures will remain in the low-to-mid 70s for highs and mid-to-upper 60s for lows.

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.
