Hot, muggy weekend with spotty showers possible

PITTSBURGH — We’ll have typical summer weather the next couple of days.

Saturday evening, we saw several alerts in our area: the National Weather Service issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for Allegheny County, in effect until 8:45 p.m.

A Flash Flood Warning was also in effect in those areas until 10 p.m.

A flood advisory was in effect for southeastern Allegheny County until 8:15 p.m.

It will be warm and muggy with a spotty shower or storm. We could certainly use the rain, as much of the area has been dry the last two and half weeks, bringing our summer rainfall deficit to nearly 3.5 inches.

People in a number of Pittsburgh area counties are being asked to conserve water due to drought conditions.

Isolated showers will spark through tonight with most areas not seeing rain. If you do get one of the slow-moving storms, you can expect heavy rain over a short period of time.

Scattered showers with a chance for thunderstorms are possible during the second half of the day Sunday. Be ready to head indoors.

Two tropical systems will make their way into the Gulf of Mexico heading into next week. We could see some rain from the remnants of these storms by late next week.
