Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service State College PA
434 AM EDT THU AUG 25 2016

A weak trough of low pressure will bring scattered showers to
western Pennsylvania early today and the chance of a shower or
thunderstorm to the eastern part of the state this afternoon.
After a cloudy start to the day over much of the state, expect
brightening skies by afternoon, especially over the central
counties. It will be a warm and very humid day with highs this
afternoon in the 80s.

A dying cold front will slide southeast from the Great Lakes
this evening, bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms to
northwest Pennsylvania. However, the chance of rain will diminish
as the weakening front pushes through the rest of the state late
tonight and early Friday. Lows tonight will be in the upper 60s to
low 70s. On Friday, expect partly sunny skies to give way to
mostly sunny skies during the afternoon, as slightly drier air
works in behind the weak cold front. Highs Friday will range from
the low 80s over the northwest part of the commonwealth, to the
low 90s across the southeast.
