PITTSBURGH —

Showers will begin to taper off later this afternoon as a cold front pushes through much of the Channel 11 viewing area, Severe Weather Team 11 meteorologist Kevin Benson said

Benson said the rain has been mainly light throughout the morning and afternoon, and no strong storms are expected.

According to Benson, the wind will shift and rather than warm air from the south, much colder air from the north will drop the temperature from 70 earlier this morning into the 50s this afternoon.

Scattered showers are possible Friday night. It will be breezy and colder with a low temperature of about 37 degrees, Benson said.

According to Benson, Saturday is expected to be partly cloudy with a high temperature around 50 degrees. Sunday will be much of the same, but a bit milder and more sun. The high temperature is about 59 degrees.
