Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service State College PA
605 AM EST Thu Feb 23 2017

Variable amounts of clouds were spread across the commonwealth
early today with some areas of dense fog blanketing the far
southeast part of the state.

Temperatures to start the day were chilly and in the low to mid 30s
over parts of Eastern Pennsylvania and the Susquehanna Valley
where pockets of clear skies were noted. ELsewhere across Central
and Western Pennsylvania, readings were balmy for late February
and in the 40s to mid 50s.

Expect partly sunny skies ahead of a weak cold front that will
nudge into Northern Pennsylvania late today and tonight. The very
warm and rather moist air aross our region will help to trigger
scattered afternoon showers and even a few thunderstorms.
The precipitation will gradually dissipate early tonight followed
by patchy fog late tonight and early Friday.

High temperatures this afternoon will reach the lower 60s across
northern Pennsylvania, and soar past record highs into the lower
70s across the southern tier counties.

Strengthening low pressure will move northeast across the Upper
Great Lakes late Friday into early Saturday. The cold front
trailing south from this low will bring a few rounds of moderate
to heavy rain showers later Friday night, and perhaps even a few
strong to potentially severe thunderstorms with gusty westerly
winds and small hail during the day Saturday. Gusty west wind of
35 to 45 mph will develop in the wake of the front Saturday into
Saturday night.
