After a taste of spring on Saturday, cooler temperatures and snow are back in the forecast for York County.

The area will see 1 to 3 inches of snow starting late Monday night or early Tuesday morning, said Elyse Colbert, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in State College.

"It doesn't look like it's going to be a huge, huge snow event," Colbert said.

The snow should be out of the way by Tuesday night, she said.

And fortunately for travelers, it will lay primarily on non-paved surfaces, said Tom Kines, a meteorologist with

"This time of year, at least during the daytime, it's usually pretty tough for the snow to accumulate on the roads and sidewalks, he said.

Spring is coming: High temperatures should hover in the 30s on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, but the cold won't last long, Kines said.

"Once we get through this spell, I think it's going to be at least a week before any much colder air comes back in," he said.

Thursday's high will be close to 50, and Friday and Saturday could see highs close to 60, Kines said.

And the warming trend could continue in the first half of next week, he said.

"We've got a shot at temperatures of 70 or higher for a day or two," Kines said.
