Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central Pennsylvania
National Weather Service State College PA
532 AM EDT Wed Apr 26 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Slowly weakening low pressure centered just east of Ocean
City Maryland early today will continue to spiral some bands
of very light rain or drizzle into the Susquehanna Valley and
points east this morning. This storm system will move toward
the Southeast New England coast this afternoon and tonight,
gradually bringing drier air into the district this
afternoon into Thursday.

A disturbance aloft and warm frontal boundary at the surface
will lift northeast across the commonwealth Thursday, bringing
a good chance for showers and scattered thunderstorms across
the western half of the state Thursday afternoon and evening.
A few of the thunderstorms could contain gusty winds and hail.

With respect to temperatures, a significant warm up is
expected to start today. High temperatures this afternoon
will range from the mid and upper 60s over the Delaware
Valley, to the mid and upper 70s across the lowlands of
western PA.

Temperatures will climb into the 70s to near 80 for Thursday
through Saturday.

Min afternoon RH will slowly lower from an average of 50 to 70
percent today, to the 35 to 45 percent range by Friday
afternoon.
