Friday will start chilly, temperatures will eventually reach mid-50s

PITTSBURGH — Keep the heavy coats handy tonight as temperatures dip into the low 20s Friday morning. Despite the chilly start, highs will shoot back into the mid-50s tomorrow with increasing clouds throughout the day.

An area of low pressure will brush by the region Friday night, bringing a period of steady but light rain. Rain will wrap up by late morning on Saturday with a mostly cloudy afternoon expected. The sun should break out again Sunday with highs by then climbing back into the 60s.

We could very well see our first 70-degree day of the year on Monday, as well above normal temperatures continue through at least the first half of next week.
