... More record chill possible for Memorial Day weekend...
The Holiday weekend is off to a record cold start. The high
Friday was just 51, a record cold high temperature for the date.
The record was 52 set in 1877.
The unseasonably cold weather will continue this weekend. The
forecast for Pittsburgh...
Tonight low 34. The record is 33 from 1925.
Saturday high 63.
Saturday night low 36. The record is 34 from 1969.
Sunday high 67.
Sunday night low 42.
Monday high 72.
The normal high is 73 and normal low 52.
This is in Stark contrast to last year when temperatures were
30 to 35 degrees warmer on Memorial Day weekend. Highs were in
the upper 80s to lower 90s and lows were in the 60s.
Additionally, a significant record would be broken if the
temperature drops to 32 or lower tonight or 33 or lower Saturday
night. Either of these would become the coldest temperature ever
recorded in Pittsburgh so late in the Spring season. Currently,
the latest occurrence of 32 or lower is may 24 from 1963. The
latest occurrence of 33 or lower is may 25 from 1972.
