THON 2018 Weekend Weather Forecast

It’s that time of year again — the time when thousands of students, families, and general spectators will pack the Bryce Jordan Center for THON. Thankfully, the entirety of the event takes place indoors, because the weather outside will be a little less than ideal. Here’s the weather forecast for this weekend, according to the Weather Channel.


For those waiting in line early to grab a spot for their respective organizations, you might want to consider bringing a rain jacket or umbrella along. While the high for Friday is 46 degrees, the weather forecast calls for rain showers all day. As we move into the later hours of the day, the temperature drops to 18 degrees, so make sure you bring some warm clothes, as well.


Unfortunately, the weather only seems to get worse as we move throughout the weekend. Saturday’s high only makes it into the mid-30s, peaking at 34 with a low of 29. The forecast even calls for some snow. So while you hopefully won’t be getting rained on, it would probably be a good idea to bring a hat and some gloves with you, especially if you’re trying to get into the BJC at a peak time and anticipate waiting in any semblance of a line.


Thankfully, by the time we reach Sunday, the weather seems to take a turn for the better. The high for the day is 45 degrees and there are not calls for precipitation — finally. Hopefully, we’ll be gifted with some nicer weather as we make into the final stretch. What better way to end a weekend For The Kids than with some sunshine and warm weather?

And while the weather forecast overall certainly isn’t as promising as last year’s, it’s still sure to be a wonderful weekend. Let’s shake the stands and rock the floor, Penn State!

That potential lies as much in the hands of active, informed, and opinionated students as it does in those of the profit-driven athletic departments.
