• Break in rain heading into the weekend


    UPDATE 7:30 p.m.

    After a week of soaking rain, we're finally getting a break as we head into the weekend. 

    Patchy morning fog will start the day Saturday, reducing visibility in some areas and making it difficult to drive. If you're headed out early to breakfast or to an event, allow some extra time, especially in areas where heavy rain has fallen the past few days.

    Through the afternoon, a less humid northwest wind will usher in more comfortable weather.

    While the air temperature will still be near normal, the drop in humidity will make it feel much better. Sunshine will mix with clouds through the afternoon Saturday and Sunday, setting up great weather to watch the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix at Schenley Park.



    A flash flood warning is in effect for parts of Fayette County, highlighting a day full of rain and storms across Western Pennsylvania.

    The warning is in effect for southern Fayette until 11:15 a.m.

    Roads in Fairchance, Fayette County, were beginning to flood around 8 a.m. as Muddy Run and Georges Creek began to run higher, according to the Fairchance emergency manager. Several roads in Masontown are closed as well.

    Hundreds of basements have already flooded in Indiana County.

    Western Pennsylvania commuters can expect showers and a few storms on their morning drive. The rain will be heavy at times, with gusting winds in some of the stronger storms.

    A landslide has closed a road in Ross Township. Streets Run Road in Baldwin also flooded, a common occurrence during heavy rains, but that water had receded before 6 a.m.

    Much of the area south of I-70 is under a flash flood watch today. Several rounds of showers and storms will produce rainfall amounts in excess of an inch in many communities in that area.
