A storm originally expected to bring up to 5 inches of snow Wednesday might not bring anything more than rain.

The nor'easter expected to hit the East Coast on Wednesday probably won't be as bad as some people feared, said John LaCorte, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in State College.

"We are going to get a glancing blow from the storm during the day on Wednesday," LaCorte said of the York area. "We are not expecting any real accumulations."

Tuesday night will see increasing clouds and a calm wind with a low around 27.

Rain is likely on Wednesday after 4 p.m.

The storm could pass by far enough off shore that even cities along the coast in New Jersey and New York could be spared from anything more than rain with snow mixed in, said LaCorte.

The high on Wednesday will be near 44 with a 60 percent chance of precipitation through the day and overnight.

Thursday will be mostly sunny and breezy with a high near 48.

Friday and Saturday should be sunny with highs in the low 50s.

For Veteran's Day on Sunday, skies will be partly cloudy with a high near 58 and an overnight low around 45.
