MORNING: Expect low clouds, patchy fog, hazy and pretty muggy conditions as you step outside tomorrow morning. Lows will range from the mid to upper 60s.

TOMORROW: Clouds break up some before thickening later in the afternoon allowing for sunshine to cook the atmosphere. Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s some places may flirt with 90. It will certainly feel like 90 when you factor in the humidity. Dew points will climb to the 70’s making it feel quite oppressive outside during the afternoon. If you have to work or be outside make sure to keep yourself hydrated and drink plenty of water. There will be isolated thunderstorms in the afternoon which could produce very heavy downpours due to the amount of moisture in the air.

Hour by Hour

HSFF: While there will be an isolate storm chance in the late afternoon, 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.


OUTLOOK:  Best chance for thunderstorms arrives Saturday as a front pushes in from the west. It should slide out of here by evening so if you are planning on being outside from noon time to the late afternoon keep an eye to the sky as that is the best chance for storms to roll in. Drier, cooler air spills in for the second half of the weekend with highs taking a big drop to the 70s. Heading into the week, morning lows will be cool and refreshing in the 50s while afternoon high temperatures, despite sunshine, remain in the 70s. Next system comes in with showers late Wednesday into Thursday.

PENN STATE GAME: Looks like if you are heading to the game you will need to prepare for scattered showers and thunderstorms for tailgating and for the game. Bring the umbrella and rain gear. Make sure if storms approach to take cover and stay safe from lightning.
