Front brings cool weather

Cooler, more manageable weather and humidity that is not expected to hit above average could make this week a comfortable start to June.

Recent unseasonably sticky weather looks to be retreating to a more average humidity as this week is predicted to be less humid than the week before, but, according to Joe Ceru, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in State College, light showers still can be expected.

Sunday’s cool and cloudy day, a leftover from recent tropical air flowing through the area, should continue into today as temperatures are expected to only reach as high as the low 70s. During the day the county could see light rain as a result of that tropical flow, Ceru said.

“We are still seeing residual moisture so there is a slight chance of showers today,” he said.

Tomorrow will have the best possibility for rain this week as a low pressure front moves down from the Great Lakes and over Central Pennsylvania. Tuesday will continue to have a high in the low 70s, but the rain should cool temperatures down for Wednesday.

“Temperatures will drop to the upper 60s on Wednesday before rebounding and increasing to the later half of the week,” Ceru said.

Despite the rain, humidity is expected to stay among the average for this time of year. Thursday is predicted to warm up into the upper 70s and as temperatures slowly rise into Friday, temperatures could reach as high as the upper 80s. For the later half of the week, no rain is expected.
