Northwestern, in the Snow?

Flashback to the snowfall of the Michigan State game - November 2008.

After the extended period of beautiful weather in Happy Valley, everyone in State College is wondering just how much longer this Indian Summer will last. Anyone who has peeked ahead at the weather for this weekend knows the other shoe is about to drop.

Joe Bastardi of StateCollege.com addressed the ideal weather we’ve experienced thus far, with concern that karma will be back for vengeance sometime this month:

“The average high temperature for game days has been 3.6 degrees above normal with weekly temperatures up to the home games averaging 4.5 above normal. Three major bursts of warmth have occurred the weeks preceding games, giving our team great practicing conditions…As for the short-term forecast, winter is coming a-calling this week and the Northwestern game will be the coldest of the year so far.”

As the Nittany Lions take the field this Saturday against the Wildcats of Northwestern, the weather forecasts we might have our first encounter with snow. Will it be similar to the dusting of the Michigan State game in ’08? Will it be a “Day After Tomorrow”-esque blizzard? Can anyone ever accurately predict the weather in this town? We’ll just have to wait and see.
