PITTSBURGH — Drizzle and fog will make for a damp start to the day Tuesday, but we’ll see a break in our wet weather pattern through the afternoon.
Another storm will push rain back into the area after lunch Wednesday, along with the threat of snow for some areas-especially north of Pittsburgh.
Rain will be steady at times late Wednesday through Thursday and could be heavy enough to bring the threat for flooding along creeks, streams and poor drainage areas.
Colder air will quickly move back in Thursday, bringing the risk for bands of lake effect snow and icy spots. Low temperatures early Friday will drop into the teens.
