Dew points will be dropping in the upper 50s to low 60s this afternoon and evening, making it feel more comfortable, so overall a very nice ending to the weekend. Although clouds will be nearly nonexistent, moonlight is still in ample supply and will make seeing the meteors harder to see.
According to the National Weather Service at State College, today will be sunny with a high near 81 and a light, north wind. A brief round of mostly dry conditions returns to the forecast, with highs in the low 80s on Sunday.
It will get warmer over the next few days, as a warm front pushes through the state.
We will see highs in the 80s for the majority of the week, and plenty of sunshine to go around.
We still think Tuesday will also be mainly pleasant; however, some models are starting to paint a different picture.
Thursday will be partly sunny with a slight risk of a PM shower or storm.
Northeast wind at 5-10mph.
There may be more trouble than that scenario, if our Futurecast afternoon run is correct.
Tuesday. Mix of sun and clouds. We'll keep our eyes on this situation. After Tuesday evening's front passes, the system will turn the wind direction to the northwest and usher in slightly milder air into CT.
Sunday: Expect a partly to mostly cloudy, hot and humid day with a 40 to 50% chance of rain and storms and afternoon temperatures in the upper 80s to low 90s. The storms do come with a weak cold front, so the high temperature and humidity lowers for Friday.
Over night Sunday a low of 47, before we start a bit of a warming trend to begin the work week.
Meanwhile in the tropics, Tropical Storm Gert has formed in the western Atlantic.
High 79F. Winds N at 10 to 15 miles per hour. A storm system will glide into southern New England from central Pennsylvania. A few storms are possible on Wednesday and again on Friday. Now it's not going to rain all day every day, but scattered showers and storms are fair game just about any day this week.
