Wet weather Tuesday before Ida’s remnants roar in with heavy rains; Flash Flood Watch issued

PITTSBURGH — Scattered showers and a few storms will fire up again Tuesday, especially after lunch into the evening.

This round of wet weather will not be directly associated with the remnants of Hurricane Ida, but any storm could still put down heavy rain.

Late Tuesday night and Wednesday, the focus shifts to the heavy rain threat from Ida. The forecast is still coming into focus, but right now a period of moderate to heavy rain will be possible early Wednesday, during the morning commute and off and on through the day.

Because the forecast is changing, the exact location and timing of the heaviest rain may not clear until later Tuesday. You may want to use that time to plan for flooding in your area.

A swath of 2″ to 4″ of heavy rain could fall as far north as Pittsburgh, with as much as 4″-5″ south and east of the city.

A Flash Flood Watch has been issued and river flooding is expected.
