Gusty winds knock out power to thousands in Pittsburgh region

PITTSBURGH — Strong gusty winds continue with the passage of a cold front associated with Beryl.

As of 4 a.m. on Thursday, Duquesne Light and FirstEnergy are reporting thousands of people without power.

It will be cooler and more comfortable as you head out early Thursday, with temperatures in the 60s and lower humidity. Clouds will mix with sunshine through the day as temperatures top out near 80. Unfortunately, the break in the heat won’t last long.

Temperatures will climb back near 90 Friday, but humidity levels should not rise until we get into the weekend.

An extended stretch of 90+ temperatures is in the forecast at least through the start of next week.
