For the first time in weeks, there's no snow in the forecast as temperatures in York are expected to rise above normal and bring a welcome reprieve from cold and snow.
York County schools were delayed Tuesday after a winter storm dropped about 2 inches of snow, but that should be the last of the snow for a while, said Elyse Colbert, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.
Some of the 2 feet of snow on the ground in York could start to melt, with sunny skies, warmer temperatures, and rain in the forecast, Colbert said.
Wednesday has a chance of rain before 1 p.m., with partly sunny skies and a high near 45. Temperatures will reach 44 on Thursday, 53 on Friday, and the mid-to-upper 40s for the weekend.
With rain in the forecast a few days, Colbert said meteorologists are going to watch for flooding, though the melt isn't expected to be "drastic," she said.
The snow that's on the ground in York only equals about 2 or 3 inches of water, some of which will be absorbed into the ground, she said.
