State College residents are waking up to another round of snow that could slow down rush hour traffic Thursday morning.

The National Weather Service has posted a Winter Weather Advisory for State College and surrounding areas. The advisory will remain in effect until 9 a.m.

The State College Area School District will open on a two hour delay due to the weather and road conditions.

"It's been snowing off and on overnight and will continue in the morning hours," says AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Tom Kines. "This is the fringe of that coastal storm that's moved up into New England."

Temperatures will be near freezing. Winds have been blowing at 15-20 mph and could gust up to 30 mph at times. "It's making it feel like it's in the teens this morning," says Kines. "Probably throughout the day it's going to feel like its in the teens.

"Obviously there are slick spots on the roads out there, especially as you head north and east from State College," he adds.

Kines expects that the snow will hang around through the morning hours and possibly into the afternoon. "Between now and when it tapers off later on today we'll probably see an inch or two. Areas north and east of state college could see three or four inches."

The days ahead will probably be dry. Temperatures for Friday should be in middle to upper 30s. The chilly winds will probably linger on through Friday.
