3:30 p.m. update:

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for Tuesday evening through Wednesday evening.

The forecast calls for a significant wintry mix, with 1 to 4 inches of snow followed by one-tenth to a half inch of ice.

The period of most intense snow and ice will be Wednesday morning, the weather service says.

2:30 p.m. update:

The last band of snow is moving away from York, leaving 4 to 8 inches of snow depending on where in York County one is located, according to Aaron Tyburski, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in State College.

With the snow tapering off and temperatures above freezing, Tyburski said road conditions are likely to improve for the evening rush hour if the roads have been plowed and sprayed with chemical treatments.

Temperatures will dip to the low 20s overnight, he said.

The next round of precipitation is expected to hit York Tuesday night, starting with about two inches of snow before converting to sleet and ice. An accumulation of a tenth of an inch of ice is possible Wednesday morning, he said.

With the heavy snow weighing on branches and lines, electric crews have been out repairing lines in York County all day, said Kathy Seilhamer, Met-Ed spokeswoman. While there have been reports of scattered outages throughout the day, the largest was a weather-related outage of about 1,500 customers in the Manchester area earlier in the day Monday, she said. As of about 3 p.m., Seilhamer said service had been restored to all but about 275 customers in York County.

Seilhamer said Met-Ed's system has withstood the heavy snow very well, but crews are also concerned about the ice forecast for Wednesday morning.

From earlier:

Punxsutawney Phil seems to be making good on his word so far.

Yorkers will get six more weeks of winter, and the first dose arrived just in time for rush hour Monday.

All of York County's school districts were closed again Monday, marking at least the seventh time this winter.

The National Weather Service said the heaviest snow will continue through 1 p.m., with precipitation tapering off after that and ending by 4 p.m.

Those who had no choice but to venture out to work ran the risk of becoming another entry on the long list of disabled vehicles and motor vehicle crashes listed on the York County Department of Emergency Services' website.

That list seems to be shrinking with each weather event, the result, perhaps, of motorists improving either their discernment or their winter driving skills.

For those who aren't quite there yet, more practice is coming.

The weather service was predicting 6 to 8 inches of snow Monday, followed by a 24-hour reprieve, said National Weather Service meteorologist Elyse Colbert.

Another weather system is moving in Tuesday night through Wednesday, and snow is among the "mixed bag" of precipitation it's expected to bring, she said.

Colbert said it was too early to tell how much of the storm will be snow, freezing rain, or sleet, but accumulation is likely to be less than Monday's storm.

There's another chance of snow Friday night into Saturday, but that's also expected to be a mix and it's too early to forecast amount, she said.

It doesn't just seem as though it has been a snowier than usual winter, Colbert said.

The average snowfall to date is about 14.5 inches, she said, but the York area has had 21 inches this year.

"It's just a wintry year," she said.
