PITTSBURGH - The massive storm system impacting more than two dozen states produced strong winds around Pittsburgh Tuesday.
 
Wind gusts of 60-plus mph took down trees and caused damage.  Chief Meteorologist Stephen Cropper said for comparison, a tropical storm is named when winds reach 39 mph, and a hurricane is named when winds reach 74 mph. 
 
Wind speeds will decrease through early Wednesday morning.
 
Steady rain is expected for the morning commute.  This will slow your travel, Cropper said.
 
A gusty storm is possible especially from noon through the evening, Cropper said.  Any storm that does develop could produce wind gusts of 40-plus mph, heavy rain and hail.
 
While storms will not be in the forecast for the rest of the week, unsettled weather will continue.  Scattered showers are expected Thursday, Friday, Saturday.
