Did you think that Pittsburgh was done with winter weather? If so, you thought wrong.
According to TribLIVE, forecasts coming from the National Weather Service are predicting cold weather this April weekend around the Greater Pittsburgh Area. Temperatures now in the mid-50s are expected to drop to a high in the mid-30s this weekend.
As a result, areas around Pittsburgh including Allegheny, Fayette and Westmoreland county could see up to three to six inches of snow, while downtown Pittsburgh could see a large amount of rain.
TribLIVE also reported that a flood advisory has been issued for the Ohio River at Pittsburgh from 6 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Sunday.
Such precipitation could postpone the Pittsburgh Pirates home opener for the first time since 2003, as they look for their first win of the season after two losses to the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.
Hopefully the postponement doesn’t happen because there are a lot of reasons to explore downtown tomorrow.
Other areas that could potentially be impacted include low elevation areas in Dunbar and Connellsville in Fayette and Greensburg and Latrobe in Westmoreland, but they should only see a light dusting.
