Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central Pennsylvania
National Weather Service State College PA
1242 PM EDT Sat Mar 25 2017

.DISCUSSION...
A cold front will sag southward across the district today and
tonight, before returning north as a warm front late Sunday and
Sunday night. Very mild conditions are expected today and
again Sunday night into Monday as we enjoy the warm sector
south of the frontal boundary. However...thickening clouds and
east to southeast flow are expected later tonight and Sunday
north of this backdoor cold front...bringing cooler conditions
and eventually some patchy drizzle or light rain. Unsettled
conditions will persist right through Tuesday as a series of
disturbances aloft move northeast and interact with the front.
No heavy rain is expected during this timeframe however.
