Wind chills will be in the upper-20s and low-30s before another breezy Monday.

A fast-moving clipper system will zip through the Great Lakes on Tuesday. Rain ahead of a cold front moves in after 1 AM tonight and scattered showers could last through sunrise tomorrow.Temperatures are expected to drop into the upper 40s. Some forecast models are hinting at a few snowflakes mixed in with the rain showers. At this point, it does not look like it will bring us much precipitation.

The NWS asks that people avoid burning leaves or yard waste, and cautions that even throwing a lit cigarette out a auto window could be enough to ignite a fire in these conditions. Winds will be south around 5 miles per hour. Skies will remain clear to partly cloudy night as high pressure slides across the Mid-Atlantic.


The addition of some cloud cover will moderate temperatures closer to the low to mid-40s for Tuesday morning, while a few intervals of sun for the afternoon will allow for highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

If you're holding off until Thursday to hit the road, you'll still be in good shape. If you plan on heading out to snag those early deals after your turkey and stuffing, make sure to dress warmly! Forecasters predict sunshine and temps around the low to mid-40's across the state on Friday. If you have early morning flights, don't worry. The high temperature will be 50 degrees.

There will be a slight of rain, possibly mixed with some snow flurries, for the State College area late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, but then dry through Friday, forecasters said.
