Severe Weather Alert Day: Evening storm threat

TIMES 519 RA. ONE OF THE BIG STORIES OF THE DAY. YEAH, A SEVERE WEATHER ALERT DAY FOR US ON THIS SUNDAY. AND WE HAD A LITTLE BIT OF A BREAK ON SATURDAY. BUT MAN, THE WEATHER IS COMING BACK IN FORCE TODAY RIGHT? YEAH, WE’RE SEEING THE POTENTIAL FOR MORE FLOODING. ALSO, SOME STRONG AND SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS LATER ON, BUT MOST OF THE DAY LOOKS GOOD. THAT DOESN’T MEAN WE CAN LET OUR GUARD DOWN THOUGH, AS WE WORK THROUGH THIS SUNDAY. RATHER COMFORTABLE FOR A START HERE IN THE MONTH OF APRIL. WE HAVE 47 DEGREES IN THE CITY. SKIES ARE STILL PERFECTLY CLEAR. BUT THAT PICTURE WILL BE CHANGING AS WE WORK THROUGH THE DAY. THIS IS WHERE WE’RE GOING AT TEMPERATURE WISE INTO THE AFTERNOON. YEAH, MUCH WARMER THAN YESTERDAY. HIGHS REBOUNDING INTO THE 70S ACROSS WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA TO BE THE LOW 70S AND CLARION. ALSO SOMERSET 76 FOR BEAVER THIS AFTERNOON 75 IN THE CITY ALSO FOR GREENSBURG EVEN THE UPPER 70S FOR SOME SPOTS CLOSER TO WEST VIRGINIA. THE WINDS ALSO GOING TO BE PICKING UP. SOME GUSTS COULD BE APPROACHING 30 35MPH. SO VERY SIMILAR TO YESTERDAY. THE COMBINATION OF ALL THAT WARMTH, THE WIND PLUS AN APPROACHING SYSTEM WILL ELEVATE OUR CHANCES FOR SEVERE WEATHER, GIVEN THE ENHANCED RISK, WHICH IS THAT ORANGE SHADED AREA THAT YOU’RE SEEING BETWEEN I-80 AND I-70. THAT’S WHY WE HAVE GONE OVER TO A SEVERE WEATHER ALERT DAY. BY FAR, FLOODING IS STILL THE TOP RISK AS OF COURSE, WE HAVEN’T HAD MUCH TIME TO RECOVER FROM THE ROUND OF RAIN THAT WE HAD EARLIER IN THE WEEK, AND EVEN FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE MONTH AS WELL. BUT ALSO THOSE STRONGER STORMS COULD PACK SOME DAMAGING WINDS, LARGE HAIL AND ALSO FREQUENT LIGHTNING. SO HERE’S HOW THINGS WILL PLAY OUT. WE’RE STARTING HERE AT 5:00 IN THE MORNING. THINGS ARE PERFECTLY CLEAR AS WE GO OVER THE NEXT FEW HOURS. THE WARM FRONT IS GOING TO BE BUILDING IN. THAT WILL SEND US SOME CLOUDS, MAYBE A STRAY SHOWER. BUT FOR MOST OF US, WE ARE KEEPING IT DRY UNTIL THE MAIN EVENT LATE THIS AFTERNOON INTO THE EVENING. THIS IS GOING TO BE WITH A COLD FRONT ACTIVITY WILL START NEAR THE I-80 CORRIDOR, THEN DROP SOUTHWARD. YOU CAN SEE SOME BRIGHT SHADES OF RED, ORANGE, EVEN PINK THERE ON FUTURECAST, INDICATING THE POTENTIAL FOR SOME EMBEDDED SEVERE STORMS ALONG THIS LINE THAT WILL CONTINUE TO DROP SOUTHWARD, MORE THAN LIKELY ARRIVING HERE IN THE CITY OF PITTSBURGH RIGHT AROUND SUNSET. SO STILL ENOUGH ENERGY BUILD UP DURING THE DAY TO SUSTAIN SOME OF THOSE SEVERE STORMS. BUT AFTER DARK, THE SEVERE THREAT WILL START TO WANE. BUT STILL, HEADS UP EVEN CLOSE TO I-70. AS WE APPROACH THE TEN ELEVEN O’CLOCK HOURS. BUT THEN EVENTUALLY THINGS WILL FIZZLE OUT AND WE WILL HAVE A RATHER DELIGHTFUL DAY ON MONDAY. AND IN FACT, MOST OF NEXT WEEK IS ALSO LOOKING TO BE VERY WARM FROM 75 TODAY TO THE LOWER 70S. AS WE CONTINUE ON THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THE WEEK, IT WON’T BE REALLY UNTIL NEXT WEEKEND THAT THINGS START TO COOL OFF ONCE AGAIN. SO MOST OF THE DAY TODAY WILL BE WARMER. LITTLE BREEZY, 76 OUR FORECAST HIGH SUNSHINE WILL GIVE WAY TO AFTERNOON CLOUDS AND THEN THAT STORM THREAT OPENS UP LATER ON THIS EVENING. SO DOES STAY SEVERE WEATHER ALERT DAY THROUGH AT LEAST THE MIDNIGHT HOUR WITH THAT STORM THREAT. ALSO SOME HEAVY RAIN COULD LEAD TO SOME FLOODING ISSUES AND OBVIOUSLY FLOODING AT NIGHT IS EVEN MORE DANGEROUS AS YOU CAN’T MAKE OUT THE DEPTH OF THOSE FLOOD WATERS, SO DO AVOID THEM IF YOU DO HAVE TO TRAVEL LATER ON. TONIGHT. MOSTLY SUNNY, 70 FOR YOUR MONDAY, 75 ON TUESDAY. WE’LL KEEP THE SHOWERS AWAY UNTIL WEDNESDAY AND WE’LL SEE A FEW MORE ROUNDS STICKING AROUND INTO THURSDAY. FRIDAY, EVEN TEMPERATURES THEN START TO COOL BACK DOWN. WE’LL BE IN THE 60S EVENTUALLY. THE 50S BY NEXT WEEKEND, SO CERTAINLY WE WOULD HOPE FOR AN EXTENDED DRY STRETCH, BUT IT LOOKS LIKE SHOWERS WILL BE BACK INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE WEEK. DOESN’T LOOK TO BE LIKE THE HUGE DOWNPOUR
