THON Weekend is finally upon us, folks.

This weekend’s forecast is a chilly one after some warmer weather last weekend. Put on your winter coat if you’re going to the Bryce Jordan Center or just participating in other events around State College for the next three days. Here’s a look at AccuWeather‘s full forecast.


During the day, temperatures will get as high as 36°. Despite the cold weather, there is no projected precipitation in the forecast. It will be breezy on your walk to the Bryce Jordan Center for the first couple hours of THON, with wind gusts getting up to 25 mph.

Bundle up once it gets dark as temperatures will drop to as low as 25° outside. A few snow showers are possible, which could disrupt travel to the BJC.


Saturday is even colder, with a high of 32° and real feel temperatures sitting in the teens. It will be cloudy and windy during the day with gusts up to 28 mph and consistent winds at 14 mph. There is a 20% chance of precipitation, too.

The evening will bring the coldest times of the entire weekend with a real feel temperature of just eight degrees. THON-goers attending their graveyard shifts will need to put on multiple layers to bear the elements en route to the event. On a positive note, there is no snow in the forecast!


The final day of THON brings weather consistent with the rest of the weekend. Temperatures will be barely above freezing, sitting at 36°. Windy conditions could cause problems for anyone commuting for the final hours of dancing. Gusts could reach as high as 40 mph, with a small chance of precipitation in the forecast of 11%.
