The Pittsburgh region is expected to experience a bit of a warm-up and dry spell this week.

Michael Brown, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Moon Township, said the temperature is expected to reach the mid 50s Sunday. The temperature will likely drop to the low 50s Sunday afternoon after a small cold front moves through.

“It was a pretty warm morning — warmer than we typically get here,” he said.

Brown said average temperatures for this time of year are typically highs in the mid 40s and lows in the upper 20s.

Brown said the most notable aspect of weather this week will be the lack of precipitation. Saturday night’s rain will likely be the last the region will see until Thursday.

Temperatures will remain around average on Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday will be the warmest day of the week with temperatures in the mid-50s.

“(We) might even see some sunshine,” he said.

While the meteorologist can’t say for sure if the winter weather is behind us , Brown said as spring nears the possibly is dwindling.

“I don’t want to say (it’s) over, but we’re running out of time now,” he said.
