Lion Eyes: Snowing in State College

Lion Eyes: Snowing in State College


     I'm dreamin' of a white ... Homecoming??

     The National Weather Service in State College reported the earliest snowfall in recorded history, measuring four-tenths of an inch of snow shortly after noon today. But that's just the preliminary.

     The weather service said two storms -- one tonight, and one tomorrow night into Saturday -- will send rain and snow into Centre County. By Saturday morning, snow accumulations will range from two inches in the valleys to six inches along the ridges to 10 inches at the highest elevations.

     For Saturday's game between Penn State and Minnesota, temperatures should be in the mid 30s with rain and snow showers, not exactly the ideal way to celebrate Homecoming. Just think, only 71 days until Christmas.
