AccuWeather Predicts Snow for Friday and Cold for Next Week

AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Tom Kines says the State College area can expect snow Friday night.

Roughly one to two inches of snow is expected Friday after rush hour.

"For people out traveling after work it shouldn't be an issue, but getting closer to 8 or 9, then you need to be concerned about slippery roads," Kines says. "There's also probably going to be a time overnight when the snow comes down kind of hard."

The snow is expected to be finished around sunrise. The rest of Saturday is expected to be dry with some sun. Temperatures will reach the upper 20s.

For Sunday, Kines says there will be a lot of clouds and maybe flurries or a little bit of snow at some point during the day. Throughout the day, winds are expected to increase. The high will be close to 32.

A cold front is expected to move in on Monday, which could mean some snow ahead of it. Then for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, temperatures are expected to drop.

"At least two of those days the highs won't be better than the teens," Kines said.

Overnight, temperatures will be around zero.

This round of frigid weather won't be as severe as the cold period earlier this month, Kines says.

"That one had a lot of wind, this one will have less wind, so yeah it's going to be cold, but it may not be as brutal due to the lack of wind," Kines says. "Nevertheless it's going to be cold for a few days."
