Patton Township police have declared a snow emergency, according to a release.

This means all vehicles must be removed from roads in the township by 9 p.m. Friday. Sidewalks must also be cleared by resident within 24 hours after the snow stops.

The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for most of central Pennsylvania early Friday. All of Centre County is under advisory from 10 p.m. Friday to 4 p.m. Saturday. The whole county should get at least two to four inches of snow.

After the snow there will be freezing rain, which could accumulate to one-fifth of an inch of ice.
