A winter weather advisory has been issued for York County and most of central Pennsylvania because of the chance of sleet and freezing rain on Monday.

The advisory runs from 4 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday.

The National Weather Service is calling for a 70 percent chance of precipitation tonight and a 100 percent chance tomorrow, with that precipitation beginning as snow and sleet.

In some areas, up to 2 inches of snow and sleet are expected. In York County, the forecast calls for an accumulation up to one-half inch.

Freezing rain will be a big factor as it falls before and during the morning commute, according to Accuweather.com.

Temperatures will warm to 37 degrees Monday afternoon, meaning any precipitation that falls in that time frame will be in the form of rain.

The conbination of warmer temperatures and wet ground means fog will be in the area most for the better part of the day on Monday.

The chance of snow continues Monday evening, but temperatures are expected to remain above freezing.

Tuesday is supposed to be mostly cloudy with a high of 53 degrees.
