Showers out ahead of the cold front extending southward from the low were just reaching the outskirts of Pittsburgh and the northern West Virginia panhandle around 4pm. By 5pm, a first wave of showers had ended at Pittsburgh with less than 0.10" of rainfall; Morgantown WV reported a trace. A few of these showers may make it over the mountains into the metro area overnight, but the focus of upper-level energy will remain near or to the north of the Great Lakes.
Tonight and Tomorrow
Clouds will increase this evening with a 40% chance of showers in the late evening or early morning and lows near 56. Tomorrow will see a chance of showers in the morning and decreasing clouds in the afternoon, highs near 70.
"Parched March"Today's WaPo has an article "After a Parched March, Water Worries Percolate" discussing the developing drought situation in the area. One item not mentioned is that a scan of the records indicates that if the current total holds through midnight, this month would join only 3 other months in 135 years of Washington records with less than 0.10" of precipitation. The others were April 1985 (0.03"), October 2000 (0.02") and October 1963 (trace).
