Pittsburgh: Warmup to Follow Dry, Breezy Weekend

A dry weekend is in store for the Pittsburgh area before a warmup moves in early next week.

It will be breezy this weekend as winds could gust up to 30 mph at times. This will cause many fallen leaves to blow around streets and neighborhoods.

The typical autumn weather conditions will be good news for those planning to get out and enjoy fall activities, such as pumpkin picking and hayrides.

Football fans attending the matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Indianapolis Colts at Heinz Field will see a great deal of sunshine throughout the game. Kickoff is scheduled for 4:25 p.m. EDT.

Sunshine and warmer air will move into the area on Monday and Tuesday under a southerly wind flow. Temperatures on Tuesday will run 10-15 degrees above average for the end of October.

This warmth will be truncated as a storm system is forecast to move in from the Plains and bring widespread rain showers for the middle of next week. Chilly air will move in behind the system for the end of next week.
