Hello Nittany Nation!

November can bring quite chilly and unsettled weather to Beaver Stadium. This Saturday, the Maryland Terrapins come to town for the first of three November home games. You're going to want to have your cold weather gear for the game, but it's not going to be as cold as it initially appeared.

There should not be too much in the way of travel problems coming in from the south or east of State College, with just some clouds and some rain showers that may mix with wet snowflakes as you draw closer to Happy Valley. Coming in from the west may pose a few more issues as snow showers may leave a covering of snow on some of the higher ridges.

It will be chilly for the pregame tailgates with some rain and snow showers possible. Temperatures will rise into the middle 40s during the morning and then will probably drift down to the lower 40s for the noon kickoff.

The possibility for rain and snow showers will continue through the game with a lean to snow showers toward the end of the game. There is a chance this precipitation event could end up quite light with sprinkles and flurries, though it is a better bet to bring the cold weather gear, hat and gloves.

This should not be enough precipitation to hamper the players on the field. Traveling home to the west, there can be some slick roads through the higher terrain.
