**THUR UPDATE**APP State / Penn State WX Trends

Unread post by WXAPP » Wed Aug 29, 2018 7:19 am

**THURS AM UPDATE***

No major changes in overall forecast thinking for State College, PA. Pepper in the change for a few thunderstorms along with the shower chances. Take your rain gear. No umbrellas in the stadium are allowed FYI.

-----------
Al last, our long wait for the return of football season is about over! The Summer doldrums of "other" "sports" is at a merciful end....

Let's get to it...

For those heading to State College, PA, here's the game day break down...

A chance for rain will be with you through the day. I'd expect a shower early with decreasing probability as the game and late afternoon / evening unfold. Not a washout by any means. Temperatures will top out in the upper 70s. Thus, we aren't talking major heat as an issue. Frankly, more of a Boone feel should be had.

8 AM: Upper 60s - M.Cloudy, chance for a shower

Noon: Mid 70s - M.Cloudy, chance for a shower

KICKOFF: Upper 70s - M.Cloudy, chance for a shower

HALFTIME: Mid to upper 70s - M.Cloudy, chance for a shower

END OF GAME: Mid 70s - M.Cloudy, chance for a shower

--------------

Safe travels to those hitting the road.

Great things await our Mountaineers this year! It's an exciting time!

GO MOUNTAINEERS!

Cooler than I expected, not sure it helps us at all though.

I'll tweak forecast tomorrow. We'll see how temp trends hold up over the next 24...either way, we aren't talking big heat and humidity.

Clouds are a good thing for game time. That stadium gets very hot even in the 70s.

Remember no umbrellas in the stadium.

THANKS WXAPP FOR ALL YOU DO...will pack a light rain jacket. Hope the team brings cleats that don't slip in the grass if we get a shower or two. We will need good traction in hAPPy Valley.

Beaver Stadium's surface is very good. Short of super heavy rain, you rarely see guys having traction issues on the wet turf.

A lot of road construction projects on the highways leading to State College:

For those coming up Rt 322 from Harrisburg, be prepared for a long backup heading into that construction zone. It's not as much the construction, but 4 lanes down to 2 on top of a mountain.

Well, I just walked to my office in a monsoon here in State College. The field was likely covered, so it should be fine. It holds up really well in the rain, so it shouldn’t be an issue if wet. Here is a picture of the field from about a week ago:
