Nothing more than flurries expected for holiday week

It’s not exactly expected to be a white Christmas with a blanket of snow covering the fields, but a few snow flakes could be seen ahead of Christmas day tomorrow.

That’s the National Weather Service forecast Sunday evening for today and tomorrow, showing a slight chance of snow before 7 a.m. today and perhaps a coating of up to an inch around the area, according to meteorologists at the forecasting center in State College.

It’s a good day and night to take in Candy Cane Lane, in DuBoistown, or another favorite holiday spot, with little to no accumulation to remain on the ground for long.

Today, look for clouds and a high near 34 degrees. Any accumulation should be less than half an inch.

Tonight, the low will be 24 with gusts of wind at about 20 miles per hour.

Look for cold conditions to travel on Christmas, with a low of 24 and gusts of wind as high as 20 miles per hour.

There’s a 20 percent chance of some flurries or snow flakes falling, according to the forecasters.

Temperatures for the remainder of the week will start to climb.

By Friday, there is a chance of freezing rain and a high near 45.

But there is a possible clearing Saturday, with partly sunny skies and a high of 41.
