Sunny week ahead; temps to steadily rise

The area can look forward to what is predicted as a nice sunny week with seasonal temperatures and a low chance of showers, according to the National Weather Service in State College.

Some scattered rain Sunday night will give way to decreasing cloud coverage. The coverage will be less than what was seen over the weekend.

Monday is expected to have a high of around 49 degrees, but it may be a wet morning in some places, though much of the remaining rain will move to the southwest of Williamsport, said Michael Colbert, meteorologist.

“Then it looks sunny for Tuesday and Wednesday, and probably Thursday as well.” he said.

It is expected to get progressively warmer into the week. Tuesday is expected to be 49 degrees and Wednesday, 50 degrees.

The lows for the nights will still dip into freezing, though, Colbert said. Lows are expected to be 25 degrees Monday night, 24 degrees on Tuesday night and 29 degrees Wednesday night.

Thursday is slated to break out of the 50s, to a high of 60 degrees, however there will be a 30 percent chance of rain for areas that don’t have partly-sunny conditions that night will be noticeably warmer, with a high of 39 degrees, according to Colbert.

The chance of showers will persist into early Friday morning, but it’s expected to clear up by sunrise, with a high of 64 degrees for the day.

Another warmer night, at 46 degrees, before the warmest day of the week, Saturday, which will be a high of 67 degrees. Some rain clouds may stick around, but only in some places, with a 30 percent chance of rain.

“So, really, a very pleasant week of weather, no storm systems, just nice and sunny,” said Colbert.
