Lee Hendricks, meteorologist for The National Weather Service in Moon, said there is a half possibility of downpour somewhere in the range of 3 and 6 p.m.

“That is the likeliest time for rain,” Hendricks said. “After 6 p.m., there is a 30 to 40% chance and a 30% chance between 8 and 9 p.m.”

The Stones’ No Filter Tour starts at 7:30 p.m. at Heinz Field on Pittsburgh’s North Shore. The Ghost Hounds, a blues-musical gang from Pittsburgh, open the show.

Parking areas open at 3:30 p.m. There are still tickets accessible.

As of 2:30 p.m., there was a still a slight opportunity for a couple of dispersed showers, said Bill Modzelewski, meteorologist for the National Weather Service.

He said temperatures should remain in the high 60s to low 70s with some stickiness. With respect to tailgaters, the hours between 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. might bring a couple of showers yet not at all like a consistent downpour, he said.

The Stones and Giant Eagle are offering a free Coronavirus inoculation facility before the show. That will be secret on the primary concourse west.

Hendricks said there is likewise a 20 percent chance of a tempest somewhere in the range of 1 and 7 p.m. Hendricks is foreseeing a typical deluge if that occurs, in no way like a portion of the significant tempests Pittsburgh persevered through this late spring.

With any rainstorm there could be lightning, Hendricks said. However, the arena has places for fans to discover cover if vital.
“The concertgoers might be damp, but the Stones should be able to get the show off,” Hendricks said. “It will be better than being on the lawn in a deluge.”
