Warm work week could feature two record-breaking days

The midstate could see not one but two record breaking days this week.

After patchy fog Monday morning, temperatures should reach a high of 77 during the day, said Craig Evanego, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in State College. Monday’s high is about 13 degrees above normal, but is just the beginning of a brief October heat wave, he added.

“The first four days of the week are going to be very warm,” Evanego said, pointing Tuesday and Wednesday as the noteworthy days. 

On Tuesday, highs are expected to reach 85 with temperatures a degree cooler expected on Wednesday. Those temperatures would break the record high of 82 degrees on Oct. 18 and Oct. 19. Both records were set in 1908 and 1945 respectively, Evanego said. 

A ridge of high pressure on the East Coast will bring unseasonably mild air from the south, Evanego said in explaining the reason for the extremely warm weather. He noted that a weather system is expected to push through the region at the end of the week, which will bring fall-like temperatures and rain.
