The blizzard that dumped 14 inches of snow on Penn State this past weekend was the biggest snowfall in seven years -- and meteorologists say there's more to come this week.
Flakes started falling Friday afternoon, picking up intensity around 9 p.m. and continuing until about noon on Saturday, Nicholas DuBee from the Campus Weather Service said.
When the sun came out in State College, 14 inches of snow were on the ground, DuBee (senior-meteorology) said.
The blizzard was fickle. The storm moved off of the East Coast toward the Susquehanna River, causing New York City to see little accumulation, Dubee said. Parts of New England did not see any snow.
Meanwhile, areas surrounding State College saw anywhere between 12 to 16 inches of snow over the weekend.
"This wasn't your typical nor'easter," DuBee said.
Currently, three to six inches are forecasted for the Centre County region this week, but if the storm moves, State College could see upwards of a foot of snow, Pigott said.
"If there's going to be error in this storm, it's going to be on the high side," he said.
Winter 2010 is turning out to be one of the snowiest winters across the mid-Atlantic region, AccuWeather meteorologist Mike Pigott said.
This past weekend's storm was the second biggest Philadelphia has ever had, totaling 28.6 inches. Pittsburgh recorded 21.1 inches of snow, he said.
And the storm has yet to completely subside. More snowfall is forecasted for Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, and State College is still in flux, Pigott said.
Road conditions were hazardous over the weekend, but Penn State Police said they did not see many traffic problems.
