Pittsburgh, PA – Western Pennsylvania residents should prepare for a rainy start to next week, with strong chances for showers and thunderstorms forecast for midweek. The National Weather Service in Pittsburgh is forecasting scattered showers this morning, with a dry and seasonable weekend ahead.

According to the U.S. National Weather Service, sunny skies with temperatures in the mid-80s will make for a pleasant weekend today and Sunday.
