Rain returns briefly before string of mild days

Tawnya Panizzi
Rain returns today but should move through by Tuesday, giving way to a mild week.

After three days of sunny — and dry — weather, thunderstorms are expected to return Monday with potentially damaging winds and hail, according to the National Weather Service.

Rain is expected late in the afternoon, just in time for rush hour, with stronger storms coming through after midnight.

Temperatures will linger near 80 degrees.

It’s the only blemish on an otherwise pleasant week-long forecast.

Rain is expected to move through the region by Tuesday and temperatures should reach a high near 77 before climbing into the mid-80s Wednesday and Thursday.

It’s been awhile since the area has seen a string of dry days.

At least a trace of rain was measured at Pittsburgh International Airport, where the NWS records the region’s official totals, on 20 days in April and another 10 days by mid-May.

On May 29, Mother Nature shattered a seven-year-old rainfall record when 1.93 inches fell at Pittsburgh International.

That broke the record of 1.29 inches for rain on May 29 that had stood since 2012.

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.
