Table of Contents

Scattered strong storms are predicted to hit Pittsburgh today, adding to the challenges posed by an ongoing heat wave.

Following a day of intense temperatures and severe weather that caused widespread power outages, residents should prepare for more extreme conditions.

Today’s Weather Outlook

Today’s forecast mirrors yesterday’s, with temperatures soaring and the heat index expected to reach the mid to upper 90s by mid-day.

Scattered strong storms are anticipated after 3 p.m., bringing heavy rain and strong winds. These conditions pose significant risks to homes, particularly rooftops.

Impact of Monday’s Storms on Roofs

Monday’s scattered strong storms led to extensive power outages affecting thousands.

The severe weather also caused significant damage to roofs across the region. High winds and heavy rain can lead to shingles being torn off, leaks forming, and structural damage.

Many homeowners reported missing shingles, damaged flashing, and water leaks inside their homes.

Roofing professionals were called out in large numbers to assess and repair the damage.

Ensuring roofs are secure and watertight before another round of storms is crucial to preventing further damage.

Heat Advisory and Weekend Relief in Sight

A Heat Advisory remains in effect for the rest of the week, with feels-like temperatures approaching triple digits.

Pittsburgh is enduring a stretch of days with highs hitting 95 degrees and above, a level of heat not experienced since September 2018.

The oppressive heat dome is expected to begin dissipating over the weekend, bringing potential showers on Sunday.

This will offer some respite, with temperatures dropping back into the 80s early next week.

Roofing Tips for Extreme Weather

Gotta Be R&B Roofing advises residents to inspect their roofs for any damage after these scattered strong storms.

Regular maintenance can prevent minor issues from escalating, especially during such extreme weather.

Ensuring your roof is in good condition is crucial for protecting your home from heavy rain and high winds.

Inspect Your Roof

After a storm, carefully inspect your roof for visible damage such as missing or damaged shingles, dents in metal roofing, and issues with flashing.

Use binoculars to get a closer look without having to climb onto the roof.

Check for Leaks

Look for water stains on your ceilings and walls, which can indicate leaks. Address these issues promptly to prevent mold growth and structural damage.

Schedule Professional Inspections

Have a professional roofing contractor from Gotta Be R&B Roofing perform a thorough inspection. They can identify problems that might not be visible to the untrained eye and provide expert repairs.
