York County and the rest of southern Pennsylvania remains under a winter weather advisory until 8 p.m. Monday, the National Weather Service said.

The area will see 3-5 inches of snow, with most snow in the morning and tapering off to snow showers in the afternoon, the NWS said. Bands of heavy snow will move through the area until around 7:30 p.m., with snow falling at a rate of an inch per hour at times, leading to reduced visibility and poor driving conditions.

Monday's high will be 38 and the low 29, the forecast said.

The state Department of Transportation says it's ready for whatever snow does fall during the early spring snow expected to hit the area Sunday night into Monday morning.

The agency activated its incident command center for York, Adams, Lancaster, Franklin, Cumberland, Perry, Dauphin and Lebanon counties at 6 p.m. Sunday night, spokesman Greg Penny said in an email.

The center will help to coordinate plowing efforts in those counties where PennDOT will use 310 plows trucks, Penny said.

"We also have 37 rental plow trucks to supplement our workforce, mainly in our largest two counties - Lancaster and York," he said.

All told, 12,636 snow lane miles will need to cleared in the eight counties if the storm hits, Penny said.

Patrols will monitor conditions and crews will be out in force prior to the morning commute clearing roads.

PennDOT workers began preparing for the storm before the start of the weekend as crews made sure their trucks were fueled and serviced, Penny said, adding there is plenty of salt on hand for this storm.
