Anyone who thought York County was through with snow for the winter should think again.

Snow is back in the local forecast this week when temperatures dip Wednesday night and Thursday.

The National Weather Service indicates snow is likely Wednesday night, when temperatures will fall to 26 degrees and the chance of precipitation is 60 percent.

The storm: The precipitation will start off as rain during the day on Wednesday, said Rob Radzanowski, a meteorologist with the weather service.

As the storm system slides our way and leaves cold air behind, the rain will likely change over to light snow overnight, he said.

But York isn't going to get much of the white stuff -- the storm will be more intense for New England, Radzanowski said.

"It looks like it's probably going to be less than an inch for you down there," he said.

The precipitation will taper off around sunrise Thursday, Radzanowski said.

Mild, then cold: Temperatures this week will be close to the normal highs of 47 and 48 -- and even higher on some days, he said.

"It's nice to be just a little bit above for a change," he said.

Sunday will get up to about 42 degrees before dropping to a low of 29, the forecast says.

Monday will be mostly cloudy with a high of 53 and a low of 37.

And Tuesday is likely to be partly sunny with a high of 55 and a low of 40.

These are the warmest temperatures York has seen in the last couple months, Radzanowski said.


When the rain and snow move in on Wednesday, temperatures will start to drop before picking back up into the high 40s and low 50s this weekend, he said.

Wednesday's high will be near 47, and Thursday will only get up to 35 degrees, according to the forecast.
