Fans and players will not have to worry about rain putting a damper on the Penn State/Michigan football game and festivities this Saturday.

A coastal storm spinning along the coast will continue to spread occasional rain and drizzle into the mid-Atlantic on Saturday.

That rain will stay to the south and east of State College, but numerous clouds will still stream over Happy Valley.

There will be some sunny spells, which will help bump afternoon temperatures into the upper 60s.

Temperature at kickoff for the Penn State/Michigan game will be near 65 degrees.

A dry evening will follow the game, then drizzle will return for late Saturday night and early Sunday morning.

Patchy dense fog could accompany the drizzle in the surrounding higher terrain, posing hazards to fans departing State College.

Even after the morning drizzle eases, clouds will once again dominate throughout the day on Sunday.

Monday will feature more in the way of sunshine.
