Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central Pennsylvania
National Weather Service State College PA
1106 AM EST Tue Nov 21 2017

.DISCUSSION...
High pressure will push off the Mid Atlantic coast today, bringing
mostly sunny, milder and breezy conditions to the area. A cold
front will sweep southeast across the region tonight into early
Wednesday, accompanied by scattered rain showers, which will
change to snow showers over the Allegheny Plateau. Breezy
conditions early Wednesday will give way to diminishing wind later
in the day, as high pressure builds in from the west.
