Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central Pennsylvania
National Weather Service State College PA
1115 AM EDT Mon Apr 23 2018

.DISCUSSION...

High pressure off the New Jersey Coast will continue to
provide the area sunny, dry weather and light east to
southeasterly winds for the rest of today, though gusts
over the Laurel Highlands will be in the 15 to 20 mph
range.

Min RHs values will drop into the 25 to 35 percent range
in most places this afternoon.

Looking ahead, Tuesday through the midweek will bring a
high likelihood for rain, beginning before daybreak Tuesday
in the Southwest, and later in the afternoon across the
Endless Mountains and Western Poconos as a moisture laden
storm system over the Tennessee Valley moves slowly to
the northeast.
