The combination of rain and warm temperatures causing snow melt will cause levels on the Allegheny river to rise on Sunday and Monday. There is a chance of flooding along the Allegheny river depending on how much rain falls.
Rain showers continue this afternoon with a few embedded downpours which will be more likely toward the Pennsylvania border. The rain becomes more intermittent by later in the day. It also becomes a bit breezier during the afternoon. Any leftover showers diminish during the early evening hours with generally cloudy skies along with some patchy fog dominating the overnight.
Most of Saturday will be dry, mostly cloudy, and perhaps a few breaks in the clouds.
As the next storm approaches, a more widespread soaking rain arrives overnight Saturday night into Sunday morning. A couple rumbles of thunder are possible. This rapidly deepening storm will result in strong to high wind gusts by Sunday morning. The wind will diminish later in the day. We should get a quick hit of much warmer air early Sunday before turning cooler during the afternoon. Much quieter weather is on tap early in the week. With a continued threat of more rain, area steams and creeks will continue to be rain swollen, and caution is advised around these bodies of water.
