Winter Weather Advisory Issued for Centre County

Old Man Winter isn’t ready to leave just yet.

The National Weather Service at State College has issued a winter weather advisory from noon on Monday until midnight for portions of central Pennsylvania, including all of Centre County.

Total snow accumulations will range from 1 to 5 inches, with the lowest amounts in the valleys and highest on ridgetops, according to NWS.

AccuWeather forecasts 1 to 3 inches for the State College area.

Rain is expected to change over to snow later Monday afternoon, with the heaviest snow coming in the late afternoon and evening before tapering off overnight.

Motorists should plan on slippery road conditions and hazardous conditions could impact the evening commute. Speed limits on Interstate 99, Interstate 80 and U.S. Route 322 in Centre County were reduced to 45 miles per hour as of Monday afternoon.

State College Area School District has canceled or postponed all after-school activities.

According to Penn State meteorologist Steve Seman, any accumulation above .2 inches would be the most snow State College has seen this late in the spring since 1993.

Rain or snow showers could linger on Wednesday, with a high of 39 degrees, according to AccuWeather. Temperatures will gradually climb throughout the week, with a high of 49 on Wednesday and 53 on Thursday before getting into the mid-60s with times of clouds and sun on Friday and Saturday.
