Pittsburgh, PA – The remnants of Tropical Storm Beryl are expected to impact Western Pennsylvania and Ohio mid-week, bringing potential severe weather to the region. Residents are urged to stay updated on the latest forecasts over the next 48 hours.

According to the National Weather Service (NWS) Pittsburgh, there remains significant uncertainty regarding the storm’s exact path. The center of the low-pressure system associated with Beryl could enter the Great Lakes region, influenced by the timing of a trough ejecting out of the Midwest. The storm could bring 1 inch of rain, with probability ranging from 10% to 30% between Wednesday and Thursday. Vertical winds from Beryl may prompt strong to severe storms during this period.

In addition to the approaching storm, the NWS forecasts a heat wave beginning Monday, with temperatures expected to soar into the mid-90s across the region. Cities such as Pittsburgh, Washington, PA, and Carrollton, OH, will experience highs around 94°F to 95°F, approximately 10 degrees above average for early July. These conditions are expected to persist through Wednesday, with a slight drop by Thursday.

An air quality alert is in effect for Pittsburgh until 8 PM on Monday, urging residents to limit outdoor activities. The NWS advises staying hydrated and taking necessary precautions during the heat wave. Partly cloudy conditions are forecasted for today, with highs reaching 91°F, followed by similar temperatures on Tuesday.

Wednesday brings a 65% chance of rain as the tropical storm remnants arrive, with highs still near 91°F. By Thursday, temperatures will drop to around 82°F, with clearer skies returning on Friday and highs of 87°F.
