York County residents should stay tuned to see how the area could be affected by a storm expected to head north next week, according to the National Weather Service.

"We're closely watching the storm's circuitous route," said Barry Lambert senior meteorologist with the weather service. "It's coming out of the Rockies and dipping down to the lower Mississippi Valley on Monday, and then it will take a left turn toward the mid-Atlantic coast on Tuesday and Wednesday.

"The only question is, 'Can it get far enough north for a significant snowfall?'"

Southeastern and southcentral Pennsylvania could get some snow, though an amount is hard to tell right now, Lambert said.

"It could be a few inches or six inches," he said. "We don't know exactly. We'll have to keep an eye on the York area. The (storm) track based on our computer model shifted more north than it was 24 hours ago. People should stay abreast of (the weather) information."

If snow finds its way north, then Baltimore and Washington, D.C., could be affected, along with travel on Interstates 81 and 95, Lambert said.
