The National Weather Service says between 1 and 3 inches of snow are possible early in the day.
Skies will start clouding up Monday evening, with an overnight low around 30. Light snow will develop after midnight and really start to fall after 4 a.m., said Craig Evanego, meteorologist with the National Weather Service.
"It may even mix with a bit of rain before it tapers off Tuesday afternoon," Evanego said.
"The roads could be slick (Tuesday) morning," he said.
The snow is the result of a weak wave of low pressure moving in from the southwest, Evanego said. The northern part of York County will see more snow than the southern areas, which will most likely have just a light covering, he said.
High temperatures on Tuesday will be in the upper 30s, with gradually moderating temperatures through the rest of the week, said Evanego.
Wednesday will be mostly sunny with light west winds and a high near 42.
Thursday and Friday will be sunny with a high in the low 40s.
Saturday is expected to be mostly cloudy with high temperatures near 48 and Sunday will be partly sunny with a high near 49.
