Stay on top of local weather with meteorologist Ray Petelin's forecast!
- OK. Well, we've been talking during our commercial breaks about what we're doing this weekend, and Stacy, for you, it involves some golf, right?
- Now I hope to get on the golf course, maybe tomorrow, because that may be the best day that we have. Let's find out. Here's Ray Petelin. Ray.
RAY PETELIN: Tomorrow's actually looking to be a pretty nice day and probably the best of the weekend as Stacy mentioned. Right now, it's not bad for an evening. You get temperatures mid to upper 60s right now. We're at 67 in Pittsburgh, 68, Kittanning. Washington's at 65.
Most of our temperatures are huddled pretty close together. You do start to see the numbers falling off out towards Somerset. You're in the upper 50s. There there's a little extra cloud cover there. That extends down into Oakland, Maryland, down towards deep Creek. So it's a little cooler there.
And I wouldn't completely rule out a stray sprinkle over the next hour or so. Now, the clouds have been breaking up over Pittsburgh, so we're getting a good patch of blue skies over Pittsburgh.
Out at the airport, still mostly cloudy skies reported at 67 degrees. Winds out of the North at 5 to 10 miles per hour. We have the low humidity. Visibility, 10 miles. And when it comes to visibility, 10 miles is the best visibility you can have, at least for when you're taking readings.
Now as Stacy mentioned, the weekend, Saturday is the best of the bunch. This is where we get the mix of sun and clouds. Now Sunday, there are going to be some scattered showers around. I am not anticipating this one to be a complete washout.
We'll get these waves of mainly lighter rain moving through, and it's going to not even come close to what we had last Sunday for Mother's Day. Remember, how it wouldn't stop raining all day long? We're not going to have that.
So clouds right now, they're breaking up over Pittsburgh. We're going to see those clearing skies try to take over for a bit tonight. And then, partly cloudy skies return tomorrow as this high pressure drifts off to the East. So that's clearing us out tonight.
We're going to get some clouds trying to follow this up tomorrow. So during the afternoon, especially we're going to see the clouds increase. You could see these spotty showers trying to develop out towards Chicago, out towards Indianapolis, Sunday, early, early morning.
We're talking well before sunrise. And 7:00 AM, some of those showers start to approach us and then they take over the area once we get into Sunday. So just know, Sunday we're going to get these areas of scattered, mainly light rain moving through. And it's not going to amount to a whole lot.
We're talking maybe a tenth to 2/10 of an inch of rainfall when all is said and done in worst case scenarios and up into the ridges. And then we're talking hundredths of an inch for most everyone else, compared to last week where we were almost two inches in many cases with that heavy, heavy rainfall.
So now, we're looking for a quiet night. We're looking for a quiet start to the weekend. So 43 tonight. Partly cloudy to mostly clear skies. Light and variable winds. Once we get into tomorrow, 69 degrees for your high temperature. This is sunshine.
It's going to mix with clouds for the afternoon. By the time we get to the evening, it's going to be mostly cloudy. So you can see here as we break it down for you, partly cloudy skies early on. Even into noontime, you're going to get a little of that sunshine. It's going to be a beautiful start to the weekend.
Upper 60s there. We keep it into the upper 60s. Some spots are going to try to flirt with that 70 degree mark. We get that into the afternoon with those mostly cloudy skies. And those clouds are not breaking up tomorrow night into Sunday.
That's because we have rain coming in. And it'll be scattered, mainly light rain. With the extra cloud cover, the extra moisture in the atmosphere, the warming is not going to be as efficient. So we're going to lose a degree for Sunday.
But it's one step back. And then we take several steps forward temperature wise. And if you like the warm stuff, next week is for you. 70 on Monday. Above average Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, where we could see 80 degrees.
