Forecasters: Sun to stay out this week

After a small chance of showers today, the sun will come out and stay out for the remainder of the week, according to forecasters at the National Weather Service in State College.

The week will start off with a small chance of showers, which will quickly dwindle with increased chance of sun and warmer weather by the weekend according to Steve Travis, meteorologist.

“If you like dry weather and sun, we will see a good deal of that this week,” he said.

A 30 percent chance of showers welcomes today’s high of 78 and low of 54. The weather will start to “cool down a little bit for Tuesday and Wednesday” according to Travis.

Tuesday and Wednesday both have an expected high temperature of 73, but are separated by their lows both in the low to mid-50s. Tuesday’s low is around 52 and Wednesday’s low is around 55.

As promised, the weather continues to have sunny skies and increased weather with a high of 76 on Thursday and a low of 57.

The weekend will be the warmest with highs in the low 80s and no sight of showers.

Friday’s high is near 80 degrees, while both Saturday and Sunday’s high is in the low 80s with similar lows from the week.

The weather for this week is similar to September weather for Williamsport this time last year, though the highs nearing the weekend are just shy of 10 degrees over the normal.

With that, summer still has a couple of sunny days left, slowly decreased weather and dryer days.

“Aside from the chance of showers it looks very dry this week,” Travis said. “If you have been putting off any plans you have a pretty nice stretch of days here.”
