Hot and humid air will remain in place Wednesday afternoon before the first of two cold fronts plows into our region and sparks shower and thunderstorms from mid-afternoon through this evening. Some of the storms could contain gusty, damaging wind and possibly prompt flash flooding.

Because of these concerns, we are under the slight risk category across southwestern Pennsylvania for severe weather from the Storm Prediction Center this afternoon and evening.

The second front arrives Thursday and drops temperatures back out of the unseasonably hot category to more tolerable upper 70s for two days before heat begins to return again next week. More showers and storms linger Thursday with the second front and a few showers will stick around Friday.
