Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service State College PA
526 AM EDT Thu Aug 17 2017

Locally dense valley fog and areas of low clouds will burn off
and allow several hours of sunshine and increasing humidity
combine to produce scattered showers and thunderstorms late today,
mainly across western Pennsylvania.

Increasingly humid air will surge into the region from the
southwest this afternoon and tonight as a warm front draped east
to west across the Central Appalachians and Ohio River Valley
lifts north across Pennsylvania. The high temperature today will
vary from the mid and upper 70s across the highest terrain of
Northern and Western Pennsylvania, to the upper 80s in the
southern valleys

Expect the showers and thunderstorms, some with locally heavy
rain and frequent lightning to spread in from the southwest late
today, and become more frequent tonight into early Friday morning.
it will be muggy tonight with lows in the 60s to lower 70s.

An approaching cold front will spark more thunderstorms during
the day Friday, especially across the eastern half of the state
where some of the storms may become strong to severe.

Cooler and drier should improve our weekend weather. A ridge
builds in early next week and we should warm up before another
northern stream cold front triggers showers again and ushers in
cooler drier around mid-week.
