Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service State College PA
1048 AM EDT Sun Jun 24 2018

Another day of showers and thunderstorms is on tap for the Keystone
state before a break for Monday into Tuesday.

A cold front over the lower Great Lakes will move southward 
across the Keystone this afternoon and evening. Ahead of the 
front, more showers and storms will form today.

Showers and storms will taper off by late evening, as much drier air
works into Pennsylvania, associated with high pressure coming down
from Quebec into New York state. Highs today will range from the low
to mid 70s across the north and west, to the low to mid 80s across
southeastern Pennsylvania. Lows tonight will range from the mid to
upper 50s across most of the Keystone state, to the low 60s across
the southeast.

Low clouds could linger into Monday morning, before the strong 
June sun burns off the cloud cover. Highs on Monday will be 
mainly in the 70s, but in the lower 80s across the southeast.

Dry and sunny weather will prevail into at least the first half
of Tuesday.

Historical Weather And Climate Facts For Today

..............................
JUNE 24TH...HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS
...1816...
The cold weather of early June finally gave way to several days of 90
degree heat in Massachusetts, including a reading of 99 degrees at Salem.
(David Ludlum)
...1924...
Six men at a rock quarry south of Winston-Salem NC sought shelter from a
thunderstorm. The structure chosen contained a quantity of dynamite.
Lightning struck a near-by tree causing the dynamite to explode. The men
were killed instantly. (The Weather Channel)
...1951...
Twelve inches of hail broke windows and roofs, and dented automobiles,
causing more than fourteen million dollars damage. The storm plowed 200
miles from Kingmand County KS into Missouri, with the Wichita area hardest
hit. It was the most disastrous hailstorm of record for the state of
Kansas. (David Ludlum)
...1952...
Thunderstorms produced a swath of hail 60 miles long and 3.5 miles wide
through parts of Hand, Beadle, Kingsbury, Miner and Jerauld counties in
South Dakota. Poultry and livestock were killed, and many persons were
injured. Hail ten inches in circumference was reported at Huron SD. (The
Weather Channel)
