Table of Contents

The relentless heatwave continues to scorch the Pittsburgh region, bringing not only high temperatures but also repeat thunderstorms.

As a trusted roofing company, we want to ensure you are prepared for these severe weather conditions.

Today’s Weather Forecast and Thunderstorms Warning

Today’s weather will be much like yesterday’s, with temperatures peaking in the mid to upper 90s by midday.

Another round of isolated thunderstorms is expected to develop after 3 p.m., bringing heavy rain and strong winds.

This stormy pattern poses a significant risk to homes, especially rooftops, which can suffer damage from the harsh elements.

The Heat Advisory will continue through the rest of the week, with “feels like” temperatures nearing triple digits.

This stretch of extreme heat, with highs around 95 degrees or more, is the most intense Pittsburgh has experienced since September 2018.

Ensuring Roof Safety During Severe Weather

As your roofing experts, we recommend the following measures to protect your home:

  1. Regular Inspections: Have your roof inspected regularly to identify and repair any damage or weaknesses.
  2. Clear Gutters: Make sure your gutters are clean to prevent water buildup and potential leaks.
  3. Secure Loose Items: Remove or tie down any outdoor furniture or objects that could be blown away by strong winds.
  4. Reinforce Roofing Materials: Consider reinforcing your shingles and other roofing materials to better withstand high winds and heavy rain.

Detailed Forecast for the Week

  • Today: Steamy and partly cloudy with a few afternoon storms. High: 95°.
  • Tonight: Warm and humid, partly to mostly cloudy. Low: 74°.
  • Tomorrow: Hot and humid with a mix of clouds and sun, isolated storm possible. High: 94°, Low: 72°.

Weekend Weather and Cooling Trend

The heat dome is expected to begin breaking down over the weekend, with showers possible on Sunday and temperatures dropping back into the 80s early next week. While this offers some relief from the heat, it also brings the risk of additional thunderstorms, emphasizing the need for ongoing vigilance.
