Although Saturday’s weather was relatively clear and above freezing, Centre County residents will need to bundle up in the week to come.

The National Weather Service is calling for a 30 percent chance of snow Sunday with highs just below freezing. Snow is expected Monday into the evening with a high of 25.

A storm system could bring an an additional 2 to 3 inches of snow into the area from Sunday night into Monday, according to NWS meteorologist Pete Jung.

The Centre Region will probably see some lighter snow than the heavy, wet snow that fell across the region Friday night and into Saturday, he said. Most of the heavy snowfall should be southwest of the county.

No weather advisories are in effect yet, he said. The threshold for advisories is 3 inches or more, although residents are cautioned that a storm is expected to move in Sunday.

Jung warned that the area is looking at a significant cooldown after the storm moves through. Lows in the single digits are expected Monday night, with highs in the 20s and lows in the single digits again Tuesday.
