Forecaster calls for stormy week

MARK NANCE/Sun-Gazette A pair of fishermen fish the Loyalsock Creek near the Slabtown Bridge Saturday on the first day of Trout Season.

Last night’s storm was expected to be the worst of the week, however more rain is forecasted, according to the National Weather Service in State College.

A tornado warning was called into effect at around 7:30 p.m., last night, with showers or thunderstorms and potentially heavy rain creating debris in the road, according to Joe Ceru, meteorologist. There may also be some mild flooding this morning.

Motorists are advised to use caution in daily commutes.

“It looks like a very, very tumultuous week,” Ceru said.

For today, “we’re looking at showers and thunder-showers early on in the morning and then that’ll move off. And then a high 54 degrees with mostly cloudy skies. Clearing as the day continues, with partly cloudy skies,” said Ceru.

Lows will sink to around 35, Monday night.

A chance of rain will continue throughout the week, with a 40 percent chance of rain Tuesday through Thursday.

On Friday, meteorologists estimate a 70 percent chance of showers, which could move toward thunderstorm conditions.

The temperature will increase, however, throughout the week.

Tuesday is expected to be a high of 62 degrees, 64 degrees Wednesday and 66 degrees Thursday. Friday will be a high of around 72 degrees.

The rain isn’t expected to abait on Saturday, with a 60 percent chance and mostly cloudy skies, and a high of around 65 degrees.

Easter Sunday “looks like it starts to clear out a little bit,” said Ceru.
