After a long, white winter so far, the snow you wake up to Monday morning may not be the last you'll see this season.

In fact, it won't be the last of it you'll see Monday, said a meteorologist with AccuWeather.

The remnants of the storm that was to start Sunday night are expected to taper off toward the end of Monday morning, said Brian Edwards.

"It's just some lingering flurries and snow showers," he said.

The brunt of the storm was to drop accumulations ranging from a coating to possibly 3 inches, depending where you live in York County, between Sunday night and 8 or 9 a.m. Monday, Edwards said.

Higher accumulations were expected for the southern part of York County, with its northern tier seeing little snow.

Morning commute: Below-freezing temperatures coupled with the fresh powder were expected to cause roads to become slippery during the morning commute, said Paul Head, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

Slippery road conditions could be exacerbated by daylight saving time, he said, as roads no longer have as much sunlight in the morning hours.

"That's what happens when you change to springtime in the middle of the winter," Head said.

The long range forecast shows we could be in for more of the temperature "roller coaster" ride we've been on of late, Edwards said.

Temperatures are expected to fluctuate between warm and spring-like and cold and wintry. That could mean winter isn't done with us just yet, despite spring being just a few days away.

"There's at least another one or two more chances of wintry precipitation," Edwards said.

Spring in sight: There will probably be a lot of clouds in the sky through Wednesday, he said, but this week will get progressively warmer.

Monday's high is expected to be near 35, with a low of 22, according to the weather service's forecast. Tuesday could get up to about 40 degrees, with a low near 28.

And Wednesday will have a high near 45 and a low of 37.

Thursday marks the official start of spring.

"We'll probably get in the 50s Thursday afternoon," Head said.
