Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central Pennsylvania
National Weather Service State College PA
248 PM EDT Thu Mar 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...

High pressure will build east of the district through this evening.
A warm front will approach from the west tonight, spreading light
rain into much of the state by dawn Friday. Temperatures at the
surface could be just cold enough to support a period of freezing
rain over the central and eastern part of the commonwealth. Any
light rain or freezing rain should lift north of the region by
Friday afternoon, with much milder air spreading into the state.
