Pittsburgh Weather: Afternoon Storm Chances Possible On Wednesday

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - Good morning, there is a storm chance for today.

At the start of the day, there were actually two chances for storms, but the initial push ended up being just a couple of isolated rain showers.

The secondary push comes after 2:00 p.m. today with rain and storms expected to form along and just ahead of a cool front as it moves by.

At this point, strong straight-line wind is the main concern with this line of storms that moves through.

We could potentially see some training of storms as well with the same place seeing a series of storms moving through over an hour or two hours' time. If this happens flooding would occur in isolated spots. Lightning will also make storms dangerous. Large hail with a diameter of more than an inch will also be possible.

With today's rain chances, highs won't be too far off from the morning lows.

I have Pittsburgh only hitting 76 for today's high.
