I saw earlier today that temps in the area will be in the low to mid 40s maybe touching 50 a few times next week unless it changed. 

It hasn't really changed.  He asked about Monday.  Here's your Monday.

What are your thoughts on round 2 tonight into tomorrow?

It does seem like the stuff around is being somewhat under represented on the HRRR but it's still fairly patchy so I don't think we'll end up with as much as some of the models have tonight. I think for the most part an inch or less but perhaps we can get a band setup that drops some localized 1-2" amounts. The best action seems to be staying NW of I-81 for now as well, with it actually snowing half decently here currently. It's been snowing off and on enough this evening that it's got most of the streets and secondary rds icy again. 

Board was cleared this afternoon right after it started snowing off and on after 2pm. 2.9" fell before, and just measured 0.7" so far since for 3.6" on the event. That makes a 44.1" current season total on those measurements. I generally consider the 45-55" range as average-ish for this end of Altoona right against the Allegheny Front so looking pretty good for Feb 18th.

Decent burst of snow currently. Wouldn’t say it’s been piling up by any means but it has been snowing pretty much all night so far.
 

Up to 1” additional now with round two, though that’s the running total all the way since mid afternoon.

All of the forecasts for yesterday were for more snow north, more mix (less snow) south. At least in Lanco the exact opposite happened. Southern parts of the county received 6-8", north of Rt. 30 it was closer to 4". 

You just never know.  :)
