PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - The remnants of Hurricane Florence began making its way through Pittsburgh Monday.

While the heavy rainfall has been devastating for some areas of the Carolinas, dumping as much as 30 inches in spots, Pittsburgh is not expected to see anywhere close to that amount of rain.

AccuWeather meteorologist Elliot Abrams tells the KDKA Radio Morning News he expects an inch or two of rain to fall through early Tuesday.

“That’s because the storm is not as solid as before. It’s moving more quickly than before, doesn’t have quite as much moisture.”

While the area won’t see the devastation that areas of North Carolina saw, there is still a chance for flash flooding.

A flood watch is in effect for Fayette, Indiana and Westmoreland Counties until 8 a.m. Tuesday.  

The good news, on Wednesday the sun comes back out and will stick around heading into the weekend.
