1-3 inches of snow in today’s forecast

Bring out the snow shovels and snow blowers again, Old Man Winter is back for another round.

The National Weather Service in State College predicts another snowstorm will hit the region today, with snow beginning in the late morning and continuing until sunset.

“The storm should produce around 1 to 3 inches of snowfall,” meteorologist Dave Samuhel said Saturday evening.

Along with the snowstorm today, another system of cold air will come through the area this week. The high temperature today is predicted to be around 28 with a low of 17 degrees. The cold air, with high temperatures in the 20s and overnight lows at zero or below, is predicted to stay in the area until Wednesday night.

There is a possibility of another snowstorm hitting the area on Thursday, but as of 8 p.m. Saturday forecasters could not say how much snow may fall then. They will continue to watch and monitor the situation throughout the week, Samuhel said.

“There will be a storm, but what areas it will affect is in question, and if it will possibly go out to sea,” meteorologist Brian Edwards added.

Starting Thursday, the temperatures will be around the mid to high 30s throughout the rest of the week. Friday’s temperature is forecast to bring in a high of 39 and a low of 20 degrees. The temperatures are forecast to stay in the mid 30s into next weekend.

Although high temperatures in the upper 30s feels unusually warm for the area this year, the average high temperature for today is 37 and the low 21 degrees.

After the area experiences another round of snow and cold, forecasters think relief may be in sight.
