Stephen Cropper's Friday Forecast (1/10/20)

PITTSBURGH — Take it outdoors this weekend, as spring-like temperatures bring a cure for cabin fever.

A few scattered showers will be possible during the day Saturday, but a good part of the daylight hours will be dry. Strong winds from the south will push temperatures into the mid to upper 60s, close to the record high temperature for the date. The current record is 68 degrees set in 1980.

Wind gusts of 30-40 mph will also be possible.
