THIS EVENING: Isolated storms, otherwise, mostly cloudy, muggy and very warm. Temps will fall from the low 80s to the mid 70s. Some of the storms may produce very heavy rain. Right now there is a FLOOD ADVISORY for areas in green where as much as 2 inches of rain may have already fallen. This will continue until 7:30pm.
HSFF: While there will be an isolate storm chance until the sun sets, kickoff should be rain free for most so games will be playing. It is going to be a very warm and muggy evening so drink plenty of water. Kickoff temperatures will be in the low 80s. Coming home we don’t cool off much as temps will be in the upper 70s and it will be quite sticky.
MORNING: Expect low clouds, patchy fog, hazy and pretty muggy conditions as you step outside tomorrow morning. Lows will range from the upper 60s to low 70s.
TOMORROW: Cold front crawls in and brings showers and thunderstorms by the afternoon. They will continue into the evening but should push south by 10pm. Clouds will slowly clear overnight as drier air spills in and that will also help to bring in a more comfortable air mass for the second half of the weekend. Highs Saturday will warm to the mid 80s, although, there may be some areas in the upper 80s. Storms may contain strong gusty winds, heavy downpours and frequent lightning.
OUTLOOK: Heading into the week, morning lows will be cool and refreshing in the 50s while afternoon high temperatures, despite sunshine, remain in the 70s. Easterly flow sets up Monday and keeps clouds around especially in our eastern counties. We’ll watch for the next system to move in and right now timing is a question mark. Clouds will thicken for Tuesday and it should remain dry with the best chance for showers and thunderstorms on Wednesday. Some could linger into Thursday if the front slows down. Looking ahead to Friday and the weekend, the coolest air of the season moves in as a broad area of Canadian high pressure builds south. Lows will dip to the low 50s while highs will barely crack 70 degrees. It does look to be dry for a few days.
PENN STATE GAME: Looks like if you are heading to the game you will need to prepare for scattered showers and thunderstorms for the latter part of tailgating and for much of the game. Bring the umbrella and rain gear. Make sure if storms approach to take cover and stay safe from lightning.
