Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central Pennsylvania
National Weather Service State College PA
1058 AM EDT Wed Oct 18 2017

.DISCUSSION...
The next 4-5 days will be very dry and pleasant as high pressure
generally dominates the region. Temperatures will edge above normal
this weekend. From a fire weather perspective the only issues are
that the relative humidity will be low during they Thursday and there
could be some modestly gusty winds Thursday into early Friday.

Guidance suggests this nice weather will come to an end early next
week as a series of cold fronts will bring some much needed rainfall
and it will get noticeably cooler next week.
