Forecast Shows Frigid Temperatures for the Week

by on December 09, 2013 1:20 PM

Down right frigid temperatures that could hit below zero in some spots are part of this week's State College area forecast.

The good news is that aside from a dusting to around one inch of snow Monday night into Tuesday morning, the area is expected to be dry until at least the weekend, according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Tom Kines.

"Later on tonight into the day tomorrow, we'll probably see periods of snow. I doubt it amounts to much, a covering to one inch or so," Kines said. "It will be dry, powdery snow, so it should be relatively easy to get rid of as far as shoveling."

The quick storm will be gone by Tuesday afternoon.

However, it's the frigid temperatures that will hang around through the week.

Tuesday, temperatures likely won't make it out of the 20 degree range. At night it will dip down into the teens.

Wednesday the high will be in the 20s again and there will be a breeze.

"So that will add a little bit more of a chill to the air," Kines said.

Thursday is expected to be the coldest day this week.

"It's not out of the question that one of these nights, probably Thursday, we get a really cold night where a lot of the area can get down into the single digits and some of the cold spots around here can actually get below zero," Kines said.
