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.
Never miss a local story.
“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.”
