Tropical moisture associated with Hurricane Matthew is expected to be pulled into the midstate on Saturday and help fuel some light rain showers throughout the area, according to the National Weather Service at State College.
But the full wrath of the storm is expect to stay well to the southeast of Pennsylvania.
“No, Hurricane Matthew isn’t heading our way, but the associated tropical moisture is. So the storm doesn’t have to hit us directly to have an impact on the local weather,” according to the National Weather Service.
A cold front is expected to move through the area on Saturday and tap into some of the moisture from the hurricane, forecasters said.
Anywhere from a quarter inch to a half rainfall is possible for the midstate on Saturday, forecasters said.
Hurricane Matthew is expected to batter the coast of North and South Carolina this weekend, then curl to the southeast and head toward the Bahamas and southern Florida by the middle of next week, according to AccuWeather.
Saturday’s high is expected to be near near 66. The low at night will be around 49.
SUNDAY: Sunny, with a high near 62. Wind gusts as high as 20 mph. Low around 44.
COLUMBUS DAY: Sunny, with a high near 62. Low around 41.
TUESDAY: Mostly sunny, with a high near 63. Low around 46.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly sunny, with a high near 67. Low around 50.
