State College Schools Delay Opening Due to Weather, Parking Restrictions in Effect
The State College Area School District says schools will operate on a two hour delay Friday morning due to the snow and bitterly cold temperatures.
Two to four inches of snow was expected to fall Thursday afternoon and into the night. Roads are plowed but could be very slippery. Road salt is not very effective in extreme cold. Blowing snow may also make travel difficult today.
Temperatures at 6:30 a.m. hovered around five degrees and with winds gusting up to 30 mph. The wind chill makes it feel like 12 degrees below zero.
Ferguson Township has declared a snow emergency. In State College Borough, a snow emergency is in effect any time more than three inches of snow has fallen.
Cars must be removed from all roads to allow snow plows to get through. Vehicles that are not removed from the street may be ticketed and possibly towed.
Residents and businesses have 24 hours to clear sidewalks once the snow has stopped falling.
