PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Today is 412 days! It’s also the home opener for the Pirates. The weather will be comfortable for the game with temperatures in the mid to over 60’s at this time.
Today: Rain ends around 7a for most of the area. Dry and warmer today.
Alarm: Despite several rain probabilities, no days with first alarm weather are likely in the next week.
Deliberately: Later this week we’ll see the 8pm sunset times roll by
Through April 11, Pittsburgh is heading into the 10th wettest year on record, dating back to 1871.
I have either cloudy or mostly cloudy skies for the first pitch.
The temperatures shouldn’t move that much for the game and stay at around 65 degrees.
Yesterday we saw an extra quarter inch of rain in Pittsburgh.
For the year now, Pittsburgh has seen 13.2 inches of rain.
This is the 10th wettest launch on record and the most since 2018 (16.25″).
We also saw more rain to start 2011. Obviously, all top ten starts were in the year.
Looking ahead, we still have plenty of opportunities for rain. I counted 6 individual chances of rain from now until Easter morning.
It will be difficult not to see measurable precipitation on almost any day through Saturday, even with relatively low chances of rain most days.
The best chance of rain right now is early Thursday when a cool front slips through.
Individual thunderstorms cannot be ruled out, general thunderstorms are possible. Thunderstorms are not to be expected.
