Pittsburgh is home to some of the country’s most interesting and unique art galleries, museums, and history. When you are ready to explore these attractions, you will want to ensure that you have the best possible weather on your side. Try to visit in late spring if you can, which is from March – June or early fall from September – October. Both seasons offer favorable temperatures without the added rainfall and snow that you are likely to encounter in other months. Late spring offers temperatures of 30 – 79 degrees Fahrenheit, while fall typically experiences 40 – 74 degrees Fahrenheit.
