Brian Thompson fills in this week for Joe Murgo to do the FOS weather forecast for Penn State's season-opener with Indiana State. Get the lowdown below.

Hello Nittany Nation.

To get the season started, we are in for one of the warmest Penn State home games in recent memory. There should not be any issues coming into State College on Saturday morning. It should be dry with some hazy sunshine. The day will start off warm, with morning temperatures in the 70s, so you won't need a jacket even if you are going to tailgate before the game.

The temperature at kickoff will be near 80 and it will be quite humid, as well. To stay as cool as possible, wear lightweight, light-colored clothing and drink plenty of non-alcoholic beverages to stay hydrated. You also want to make sure to wear the sunscreen.

Temperatures will rise into the 80s throughout the game and clouds will begin to build, but it should remain dry during the game. For post-game tailgates, temperatures will be around 85 or 86 degrees and it will still be humid.

A shower or thunderstorm may find its way into Happy Valley toward evening, but much of the afternoon and evening will be dry. If you're heading northwest out of State College after the game, you'll stand a better chance of running into a shower or thunderstorm. If you're going toward Harrisburg or Philadelphia, it should be a dry trip home.
