A winter weather advisory is in effect until about 1 p.m. Saturday, according the National Weather Service in State College.

NWS meteorologist Joe Ceru said snow accumulation will be 3 to 4 inches throughout most of the county and up to 5 inches in the higher elevations and in the most southern part of the county. Snowfall is expected to taper off late in the morning.

More snow is in the forecast for Sunday afternoon and again Monday, possibly interrupting the morning commute.

“In areas where forecasts are calling for significant snow and possible icy conditions, motorists should postpone travel whenever possible,” the state Department of Transportation said in a news release. “Those who travel in adverse conditions should ensure that their vehicle has a full tank of gas and an emergency kit packed.”
