Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service State College PA
457 AM EDT Sun Jul 22 2018

A compact low pressure area overhead will lift northward and out 
of the state this morning. It will take the constant, occasionally
heavy rain with it. However, a broad low pressure area to the west
of the state will sit in place for most of this week. This stagnant
pattern will make for numerous showers and thunderstorms each day,
especially during the afternoon and evening hours.

While there could be some brief breaks in the clouds today, it
will only serve to help grow those showers and storms. Expect 
highs to only be in the 70s and lower 80s today. 

Expect a decrease in the coverage of showers tonight, but it will
remain mostly cloudy. Lows will be in the 60s in most of the
state, but only fall to 70 or 75 by daybreak Monday. Highs on
Monday will be 75 to 80 degrees in the central mountains, but 80 
to 85 in the lower elevations and urban areas. 

With the persistent showers in the forecast for many days, 
flooding may again become a concern, even along the larger creeks
and rivers.
