Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central Pennsylvania
National Weather Service State College PA
1114 AM EDT Wed Jul 26 2017

.DISCUSSION...

A ridge of high pressure extending across the central and
northern Appalachians will bring a pleasantly warm day with
comfortable humidity.

Mid level clouds will increase from the west tonight into
Thursday. A cold front will push gradually southeast across
the district late Thursday night through Friday morning
with numerous showers and isolated to scattered thunderstorms.

Another wave or two low pressure will likely form along this
front as it sags to the southern border of the state, bringing
some additional periods of rain Friday afternoon into Saturday
morning, mainly across the southern portion of Pennsylvania.
