Sprinkles, snow showers forecast early in week

Veterans and their families heading to special events, breakfasts or dinners today shouldn’t face the winds or problematic weather conditions as they might have on Sunday.

In fact, after tonight’s brief showers and possibly some coating of snow in higher elevations north of Williamsport, the remainder of the week appears to be more mild and settled, according to Barry Lambert, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in State College.

As he looked at the forecast, Lambert said the highest wind gusts throughout the region Sunday topped out at 45 mph. The weather service issues a wind advisory when the gusts are expected to reach 46 mph or faster, he said.

Tuesday looks to be a brisk cold day with highs in the upper 30s and nudging about 40 degrees in the boroughs and city along the West Branch of the Susquehanna River. It’ll drop to a low of 23.

The remainder of the week should be partly to mostly sunny with a slow warming as high pressure arrives.

By Wednesday, it should be mostly sunny, with a high near 38 and a low that night about 24.

The warmup continues and, by Thursday, it should stay sunny with a high near 43 and a low of 27.

It gets better as Friday arrives and for the weekend, with a mostly sunny day Friday, with a high near 46. It’ll cloud up for the football games Friday night, with a low about 32.

Among the best days forecast is Saturday, a mostly sunny day, with a high near 48.
