Discussion

A cold front crossed the region yesterday and today will be much colder than recent days with temperatures mainly in the 40’s during the afternoon hours. A strong wind will accompany the chill with gusts up to 30 mph possible. The chill will begin to ease this weekend with temperatures approaching the mid 50’s on Saturday and 60 degrees on Sunday. A frontal system will increase the threat for showers on Monday and Tuesday, but it'll stay pretty mild. Elsewhere this weekend, the weather for the Penn State/Nebraska game on Saturday will be windy and chilly with some sunshine and they could have a few snow flurries up in State College later today.
