Rain Thursday with threat of hail, snow showers

PITTSBURGH — The Ohio River crested earlier this morning and will continue to quickly recede through tonight.


An upper level low will pinwheel over the area this afternoon, keeping the chance for scattered rain and snow showers. With plenty of cold air aloft, some small hail or graupel can’t be ruled out either.

After a bit of a reprieve tonight, more rain or snow showers will get going as early as tomorrow morning as temperatures struggle just to get out of the 30s. A northwest breeze of 10-20 mph will keep wind chills in the 30s all day long Friday. Be prepared if headed out to Opening Day and remember there will still be showers in the area.

We start to turn a corner this weekend but not much if any sun will be felt Saturday. That changes Sunday as highs rebound into the upper 50s with even warmer weather on the way early next week.
