We are tracking the potential for some stronger storms to roll through on Sunday, especially as we head into the afternoon and evening. That rain is associated with a cold front that will bring in some cooler air into Pittsburgh and push out some of that humidity. 

Sunday is a First Alert Weather Day, with a slight or level 2 out of 5 risk for severe storms with damaging wind, hail, and a tornado can't be ruled out as well. 

For Monday, it will be cooler and less humid, which means it will be far more comfortable! 

Monday is expected to be a dry day too, and then temperatures will start to warm up as we head into Tuesday. Another chance for widespread rain comes on Wednesday.
