York County has likely seen the last of unseasonably warm temperatures, at least for a while, as a rain front ushers in blustery winds and a chilly weekend, according to the National Weather Service.

Scattered showers began moving into the most western portions of York County just before 1 p.m. Friday, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Craig Evanego.

Expect showers, off and on, throughout the day Friday and through the better part of Friday night, he said.

"It looks like things should improve (Saturday), and we might even see some breaks in the clouds as the day goes on," Evanego said.

Between a quarter-inch and a half-inch of rain accumulation is expected, he said.

Temperatures Saturday will plummet, with a predicted high of just 55 degrees and a low overnight Saturday of 41 degrees, according to the weather service.

Blustery northwest winds are expected Saturday as well, Evanego said.

"It'll feel chilly out," he said.

By Sunday, temperatures will rebound a bit, although it will still be breezy, according to Evanego.

He predicted highs in the low 60s, "which is pretty close to normal for this time of the year."

Expect normal to cooler-than-normal temperatures next week, he said.

"It may be a while before we see (unseasonably warm) temperatures again," Evanego said.

Instead, "more typical fall weather" is predicted, he said.
