Local residents still reeling from the foot of snow that fell on York County this week might want to ready themselves for another storm.
Meteorologists are predicting a wintry mix of snow, sleet and rain that will begin late Friday and continue through Saturday.
Accumulation totals won't be predicted until later this week, but the storm is coming, according to Elyse Colbert, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.
A cold week, with lows in the teens and highs in the 20s, will lead to a wet weekend, she said.
Snow, sleet and rain are expected and will create dangerous roadways, Colbert said.
"With any winter storm, roads can be slippery. Because it's a mix, there's potential for icier conditions," she said.
As the temperature rises from the low 30s on Saturday to highs near 40 on Sunday, the wintry mix will taper off, Colbert said.
The weekend storm will come on the heels of two, "typical winter storm systems," she said.
About 6 inches of snow fell in York County on Sunday and another 6 inches accumulated on Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.
Depending how much precipitation the county gets this weekend, York may see more snow this week than all of last winter.
The region received 17 inches of snow last winter, compared to a foot so far this week, Colbert said.
But this week is no indication of how winter will treat York County, she said, citing that the National Weather Service doesn't make long-range predictions.
The county's location also makes it difficult for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to make predictions for the region in its U.S. Winter Outlook.
York County falls into an equal-chance category, in which there's not a strong or reliable enough climate signal to predict above-, near-, or below-normal temperatures and precipitation, according to the outlook.
