FRIDAY:  It’s another refreshingly amazing day on tap.  Highs today will top out near 80° with low humidity air.  Expect sunshine to clouds later in the day.  Tonight, we dip to the low 60s; another comfy night for sleeping!


FOOTBALL:  Enjoy the fresh air for Friday night football!  We’ll see increasing clouds and slowly dropping temperatures.  We hover near 70° for the game tonight.


Penn State kicks off the season against UCF in Dublin, Ireland at 8:30AM Saturday (that’s 1:30PM in Ireland).  It’s mild and dry under partly cloudy skies.  Temperatures are in the low 60s with a westerly breeze at 10-20mph.  Let’s Go State!


LABOR DAY WEEKEND:  A warm front approaches for Saturday.  This brings some added clouds and some slow to rise temperatures.  Highs will hit the low to middle 80s with humidity knocking on our door.  A storm or two is possible, but it’s a mainly dry day.  Sunday, it’s mostly cloudy with a cold front approaching.  The heat and humidity builds.  Highs make it to the upper 80s.  Showers and storms look to arrive later in the day.

3 Day Planner

For Monday, keep all your plans outdoors.  It’s warm, muggy, and partly cloudy.  A few storms are possible, but just have a backup plan for an hour or two to dodge the rain.


BEACH WEEKEND:  The forecast along the shores looks pleasant and mild.  Highs are in the upper 70s Friday & near 80° Saturday.  Expect low 80s for Sunday and Monday.  Today, enjoy sunshine but expect more clouds Sunday into Monday.  Stray storms may fire Saturday, but scattered storms are possible Sunday and Monday.  It’s by no means a washout of a weekend.  Waves are 2-5 feet and it’s a bit breezy at times.  Water temps are in the middle 70s.  Rip current risks fade today.  Have a great trip!


NEXT WEEK:  It’s warm and stuffy to start the shortened work week.  Highs are in the upper 80s Tuesday with storms possible late as another front moves through.  We clear and dry for midweek, with middle 80s in the cards.  Enjoy!

Have a fantastic Friday and a safe holiday weekend!
