Murgo’s Penn State Football Forecast

WTAJ’s chief meteorologist provides home-weekend weather reports for PSU fans. What will it be like when the Nittany Lions tangle with Temple, as both teams look to become bowl eligible?


Hello Nittany Nation.

We're heading toward the second of three November home games at Beaver Stadium. We all know that November games can be rough when it comes to weather, and given the recent arctic blast into the nation some fear the worst.

However, in the grand scheme, the weather really won't be too bad when Temple visits Penn State Saturday. There shouldn't be any travel problems due to the weather as you head to the stadium.

It will be cold for the pregame tailgates with temperatures in the 20s and a bit of a brisk wind. The mercury will only rebound into the lower 30s for the noon kickoff and will hold in the 30s through the game despite a mix of clouds and sunshine.

This will be quite cold in the shade and still chilly in the sun, so you should wear the cold weather gear and bring the hats and gloves just in case.

A couple of flurries cannot be ruled out, but odds are it will be dry for the game. A breeze will be noticeable but should not be too much of a factor.

The weather should stay fine for postgame travel, though travelers heading a good bit to west may run into some snowflakes.
