Warm weather this week for York
After a taste of spring Sunday, York County can expect to see another couple of days of unseasonable warmth. On Sunday, there was a recorded high of 66, according to Accuweather.com.
On Saturday morning, Tonya Delaney, of York City, was walking her two dogs with her husband and daughter. Delaney said they were planning to go out during the warm weather Sunday.
"We're going to the dog park tomorrow," she said.
Delaney is ready for the winter to go away, but she takes it in stride.
"What can you expect?" she said.
She said the family is excited for spring to finally come.
"Everyone's been cooped up with all the snow," she said. "We're glad to be outside finally."
James Friel, of Conewago Township, was enjoying a walk Saturday morning.
"It's much easier because there's no snow," he said.
For Sunday, he planned to go for another walk in the morning. Friel, who says he enjoys the outdoors, said he wished he could go biking, but his usual bike trail was too wet. For Sunday, he said he was just going to enjoy the day, as it is too early to do anything with his yard.
What's next: Accuweather Meteorologist John Gresiak said the relatively warmer weather will stick around in the beginning of the week.
"Monday and Tuesday are still going to be relatively mild," he said, adding that Monday should be in the 50s, with Tuesday being in the 60s again.
But then, that changeable March weather will be evident.
"By Thursday we're predicting a high of 35 again," he said.
Gresiak said we could also be looking at a potential for more rain, similar to what had happened on Wednesday of this past week.
"Depending on how things work out this week, we could see a similar scenario come to this Wednesday," he said, adding that they are looking at showers and thunderstorms as the cold air comes back in.
Gresiak said that the fluctuation of weather is something that the area could see leading up to spring.
"We're going to see a lot of up and down, I think, in the temperature pattern in the first part of March," he said, adding that it's kind of a "back-and- forth" between the cold and warm air coming in.
"If you don't like it, just wait a day or two," he said.
