The National Weather Service on Tuesday revised its prediction for snow in State College and surrounding communities Wednesday.
A winter storm warning will be in effect in State College and communities to its east and south overnight Tuesday and throughout the day Wednesday, with 6 to 8 inches of snow anticipated.
Communities to the north and west of State College will be on a winter weather advisory and will get 3 to 6 inches of snow.
Meteorologist Bill Gartner said light snow will begin in the area between 1 and 4 a.m. and that heavier snow will fall after sunrise and into the early afternoon. He said snowfall would taper off by the early evening.
“It’s the first significant snowfall, and it’s on a big travel day, so it will have a significant impact on traveling,” Gartner said. “For anyone traveling, if you can leave today when it’s nice and dry, do that. If not, wait it out for your safety.”
