Enjoy a Mild Tuesday Before Snow, Wind Chills Arrive
It's not quite a heat wave but we'll take it. We're getting a big winter warm-up (but more snow is heading this way).
AccuWeather Meteorologist Andy Mussoline says State College will see a high around 58 degrees on Tuesday, so get out and enjoy the weather while you can.
"It's going to be nice and mild across the area so we'll have a mixture of sunshine and clouds," he says. "That kind of warmth is more typical for the middle of April, so it's going to be just a really nice day across the area for those tired of the winter cold."
But it won't last long.
Tuesday night rain will move into the area and the low will be around 40. The rain will stick around throughout the day on Wednesday. A cold winter storm will be behind the rain.
"It's going to wrap in significantly colder air later Wednesday and Wednesday night," Mussoline says.
That means the rain late Tuesday night is going to begin to mix with snow Wednesday afternoon and change to all snow Wednesday evening.
One to 3 inches of snow is expected.
"This brief spring-like weather will change to cold and is going to remind us we're still in winter," says Mussoline.
And it will be cold with a low of 14 Wednesday night. That means any wet or slushy roads may turn to ice by Thursday morning.
Thursday will be a frigid day with a high of 22 and with the wind chill it will feel like it's in the single digits.
There is, however, hope for later in the week. Friday it's expected to turn mild again with a high of 47.
