More Wintry Weather Expected, Could Make Monday Morning Commute Slippery
Another shot of wintry weather may make roads and sidewalks a slippery mess in the coming hours.
And those slick conditions may also slow down commuters Monday morning.
The National Weather Service has posted a Winter Weather Advisory for State College and all of central Pennsylvania.
According to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Tom Kines, "We're going to see some snow in the course of the day. In the overnight hours we'll see a change to freezing rain or freezing drizzle."
The forecast calls for a potentially slippery mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain. We may see accumulations of one to two inches of snow, followed by a coating of ice.
Light snow will move in late Sunday morning or early this afternoon and continue into the evening hours before mixing with sleet and freezing rain.
Kines says, "I don't think it's the type of storm that's going to create widespread power outages. There could be a coating of ice on sidewalks and roads that will cause problems."
Hazardous travel conditions are probable because of icy conditions.
Freezing rain could continue into Monday morning. "I think temperatures will still be below freezing at 7 a.m. [Monday] and any precipitation that's falling will be freezing."
The Winter Weather Advisory will remain in effect from 1 p.m. Sunday until 10 a.m. Monday.
