More flurries, then warmup headed for region

A snowy morning made for a slippery commute Tuesday throughout Centre County.

Nearly 3 inches fell in some areas in the early morning hours, causing at least one school district to close.

Philipsburg-Osceola Area School District originally began with a two-hour delay, but officials ended up closing for the day due to unsafe road conditions.

Other school districts in the county opened on time.

PennDOT reported that a crash on Interstate 80 slowed traffic. The crash occurred on the eastbound lanes between the Milesburg and Bellefonte exits, resulting in a lane restriction. The highway was re-opened before 9:30 a.m.

Schools to the west, including Tyrone and West Branch, were on two-hour delays, while Moshannon Valley was closed.

Flurries are expected to continue into Wednesday morning, according to AccuWeather.com in Ferguson Township. Highs on Wednesday will be 28 and a low of 19.

But a warm-up beginning Thursday and continuing into the weekend could see temperatures as high as 50 degrees, according to AccuWeather. On Friday and Saturday, however, less than a half-inch of rain is possible on both days.
