For those heading to watch Little League World Series games, including the weekend grand finale, the forecast seems to be pretty close to perfect.
That's not to say there won't be the occasional rain shower or thunderstorm, but there aren't any major systems moving this way for the next seven days.
"We're not seeing any big systems for the weekend, but it's a bit far off for specifics," said Craig Evanego, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in State College.

Many visitors and residents are anticipating walking around downtown Friday night as Williamsport Welcomes the World between 5 and 9 p.m.
The event features a street bazaar atmosphere, with food, children's games and an autograph signing session by Philadelphia Phillies retired pitcher Steve Carlton, who is in the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y.
The event should be rain-free, according to the forecaster. Another big day is championship Sunday at the 66th annual Little League World Series. The forecast shows a possible high temperature of near 78 and only a 30-percent chance of rain.
As the week begins:
Today, look for peeks of sun and a 60-percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after 2 p.m., with highs in the 70s.
Any showers that take place should taper off Monday night, as temperatures drop into the mid 50s.
Tuesday is forecast to be partly sunny with a 20-percent chance of afternoon showers or thunderstorms and temperatures reaching 80 degrees.
For day games, wear shorts and short-sleeves, as Wednesday through Friday will be sunny each day, with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s.
During the evenings, it might be nice to have a small jacket or thicker shirt, as temperatures will drop into the 60s.
