Pittsburgh Weather: Severe Storm Chances – CBS Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — There’s another chance for severe weather for today with the area placed under a marginal risk.

At this point, strong straight line winds along with frequent lightning and downpours are the main concerns.

I think there is a very real possibility for us to see our daily risk bumped from the marginal to a slight risk of severe weather this afternoon depending on what radar and satellite imagery is showing.

The set-up is a classic one for severe wind speeds with us east and just south of an upper low that is churning along the Illinois-Missouri state lines near St. Louis.

There is a moisture tongue that extends through Tennessee and Kentucky with a warm front slowly moving north through northern New York.

This puts our area in the ‘warm sector’ with plenty of moisture to work with.
