Weekend to Bring Break From Summer Storms

by on June 06, 2014 12:02 PM

Even though the weekend is expected to be sunny and seasonable, State College is still in the eye of the storm, in a matter of speaking.

After “a corridor of storms” passed through the area over the past several days, bringing with it days of rain and gloomy grey clouds, Accuweather Meteorologist Andy Mussoline says this weekend will be a brief break from storms.

Both Saturday and Sunday are expected to have a high of 80 with plenty of sunshine. Mussoline anticipates low humidity through Saturday that will begin to increase through Sunday.

Though the average temperature for this point in the year is 76, Mussoline says that the weekend “will feel really nice,” especially considering the return to rain and clouds anticipated next week.

Humidity is expected to remain fairly high throughout the week, with thunderstorms by Tuesday or Wednesday that may last into the start of the next weekend.

John Hughes, PGA general manager with Penn State Golf Courses, says he’s looking forward to the warm weather and a busy weekend on the greens.

“The weather dictates a lot of business,” Hughes says. “When it does rain, you may see some diehards or people from out of town, but anyone local will come up with something nice indoors.”

Hughes says that he expects to see over 100 golfers at the White and Blue Course holes each day this weekend, with alumni golfing events taking advantage of the pleasant weather.
