265 FXUS61 KCTP 180108 AFDCTP Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service State College PA 908 PM EDT Tue Oct 17 2017 .SYNOPSIS... High pressure will remain in place all the way into the weekend. This will bring an extended period of dry weather and mild temperatures. A change in the weather is expected early next week when a cold front will bring a chance of showers. && .NEAR TERM /UNTIL 8 AM WEDNESDAY MORNING/... Only tweaks were to nudge the mins down just a deg over the mid-Susq and THV, where micro climate says that temps will get cold tonight. However, this did not put the majority of those areas into m30s for mins tonight. So, no frost advy for now. Prev... We are at the northern end of a big bubble so no trouble. Beautiful near normal mid-October day. Light winds so it should feel comfortable this afternoon with the sunshine. But when the sun goes down the air will be a tad cool. Due to warm water bodies expect some patchy fog in stream and river valleys and large ponds and lakes. && .SHORT TERM /8 AM WEDNESDAY MORNING THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/... Steady warming trend begins with temperatures peaking well into the 60s on Wednesday and a bit warmer Wednesday night. Low temperatures probably could support some overnight patch fog Thursday AM. Another nice but slightly warmer day still on Thursday. We`re on a roll for nice this week. && .LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/... As has been the case for much of the last month, upper level ridging will keep the region dry and mild through the weekend. A trof will approach the region on Monday bringing an increase in cloud cover and an increasing chance for showers. && .AVIATION /01Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/... Clear skies will prevail through the TAF period. Winds will generally be light, favoring the southwest under 10 knots through the period as well. Generally no restrictions expected through Sunday, except for some patchy valley fog in the overnights and near sunrise. This should become more prevalent later in the period, Friday through Sunday. Outlook... Wed-Thu...No sig wx expected. Fri-Sun...Mainly VFR, with just some patchy AM valley fog. && .CTP WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... None. && $$ SYNOPSIS...Ross NEAR TERM...Dangelo SHORT TERM...Grumm LONG TERM...Ross AVIATION...Jung is the U.S. government's official web portal to all federal, state and local government web resources and services.
