PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Strong storms will be possible this afternoon as a mid-level shortwave moves through the area.
At this point, the main concern comes in the way of destructive straight-line wind. While the chance is small, tornadoes also cannot be ruled out.

Storms also could last through midnight. Rain showers will continue into Friday afternoon.
The high on Thursday will likely be short of the 90-degree mark, hitting 88 degrees once again.
There will be a brief cooldown on Friday with highs in the mid-80s.
The hottest day of the week will likely come on Saturday, with the potential for a high temperature of 92 degrees with dry conditions.
Most of Sunday will be dry but late-day afternoon to evening storms may spawn a couple of stronger storms.
