If Hurricane Matthew does have an impact on weather in the midstate, it will likely be later in the week.
Current projections are calling for above normal temperatures for most of the week to go along with mostly sunny skies and dry conditions. As of now Hurricane Matthew is still in the Caribbean moving slowly up the Atlantic Coast and it is unclear if the weather system will disrupt the midstate at this point, said Craig Evanego, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in State College.
“More than likely it’s going to stay east of us, but some of the models are showing some rain,” Evanego said. “Other than that it looks like a fairly quiet week for Central Pennsylvania.”
The region won’t see any effects of the hurricane until Friday or Saturday, if any, Evanego said. He added that a cold front coming around the same time, but still to early to tell if there will be noteworthy rain to accompany the front.
