EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING: Temps will climb quickly again Saturday

PITTSBURGH — Temperatures will quickly climb again Saturday pushing heat indices back to dangerous levels. Highs will touch the mid-90s with heat index values near 100. An isolated storm is possible, but it won’t be enough to cool us off.

Storms will be more likely Sunday as cooler, less humid air moves into the area, and a few storms could be strong to severe. It will still be steamy ahead of the system, so heavy downpours, damaging winds, hail and frequent lightning will all be possible, especially after lunch into the evening.

We will finally “feel” the change in the weather Monday with temperatures falling nearly 10 degrees and humidity levels falling.
