Penn State Under a 2-Hour Delay Following Winter Storm
Updated at 7 a.m.
Penn State is on a two-hour delay until 10 a.m, the university announced Wednesday morning.
Classes that begin at or after 10 a.m. will be held as scheduled. Employees who have been identified by their work unit as performing essential services should report as regularly scheduled unless advised otherwise by their supervisor, according to a Penn State Live release.
All schools in the State College Area District are also under a two-hour delay.
Just as the snowfall from a pre-Christmas storm was starting to evaporate, Old Man Winter is expected to replenish the area with a fresh coating of 2-4 inches, according to AccuWeather.
The National Weather Service in State College has issued a winter weather advisory for a wintry mix from 7 p.m. Tuesday to 11 a.m. Wednesday. Moderate accumulations of freezing rain, sleet and snow are expected.
Winds are expected to remain light, reaching only about 6 mph, with temperatures in the lower 30s.
The area saw its first significant snowfall of the winter late last year, when about 8 inches fell just before Christmas. Above average temperatures last weekend and early this week have essentially melted that snow, but more is now on the way.
