Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central Pennsylvania
National Weather Service State College PA
535 AM EDT Sun Oct 21 2018

.DISCUSSION...

A sharp upper trough will slide off the east coast today,
with a surface ridge of high pressure quickly building into
the region.

Valley rain showers and snow showers across the Northern and
Western Mountains will diminish quickly this morning after
bringing a coating to an inch or two of snow over the mountain
tops across the Alleghenies and Laurels.

Cold and mainly dry weather is expected for the upcoming week.
