Accuweather: 1 to 3 inches of snow this afternoon and tonight

Update, 11:16 a.m.: A number of school districts are dismissing early today because of the snow. Students in the Selinsgrove, Shamokin, Southern Columbia, Danville, Line Mountain, Lewisburg, Midd-West, Mifflinburg, Milton, and Mount Carmel districts will be dismissing at various times from 11:30 a.m. to about 1:30 p.m. Check with your school for the specific dismissal time.

  STATE COLLEGE - A broad weather system generating mostly light snow will bring 1 to 3 inches of the white stuff to the Central Susqueahnna Valley this afternoon and tonight, meteorologists are predicting this morning.

The snow is expected to begin by mid afternoon and continue until early evening according to the most recent forecasts.

The snow will be dry and powdery in many areas, what meteorologists call a high-ratio snow. This simply means a small amount of moisture can lead to a moderate amount of snow. A tenth of an inch of water can produce 2 or 3 inches, instead of the more typical 1 inch for the same moisture in an average storm setup, said Alex Sosnowski, an expert senior meteorologist for Accuweather in State College.

Farther south, enough warm air will stream in aloft, while cold air hangs on near the surface to bring a zone of sleet, freezing rain or a mixture containing snow, ice and plain rain.

Milder weather is forecast to return next week. However, the transition may come at a cost. A period of sleet and freezing rain is forecast for some locations.
