Sleet in York County might cause some slick roads, according to a weather official.

Craig Evanego, meteorologist for the National Weather Service (NWS) in State College, said the sleet in York County Tuesday, Nov. 7, shouldn't cause problems for the afternoon commute, but could potentially be an issue for the morning commute Wednesday, Nov. 8.

“There could be a few slick spots, anything that's still wet could be a little slick," he said.

The sleet and cooler weather is caused by a cold front coming through the area, according to Evanego.

Cold: Temperatures are expected to get even colder later in the week.

Evanego said an "arctic front" will hit the area the night of Thursday, Nov. 9. That could cause some snowflakes to hit the county..

"Right now it doesn't look like it will amount to anything," he said Tuesday.

 After that, temperatures are expected to drop.

"It's going to feel a bit 'winter-like,'" he said.

The NWS is expecting a high of 46 and low of 26 on Friday, and a high of 45 and a low of 31 Saturday.

Temperatures are expected to return to normal by Sunday or Monday, according to Evanego.
