Meteorologists: Light snow, freezing rain possible Sunday night

Forecasters are calling for light precipitation to make its way across York County overnight Sunday, Nov. 12.

Freezing rain causes icy travel along Loucks Rd. and across the region Tuesday, Jan. 26, 2016.

The kind of precipitation, however, is anyone’s guess.

Alan Reppert, senior meteorologist at AccuWeather in State College, said he expects light freezing rain to drizzle York County overnight into Monday, but adds, “We’re not expecting it to cause any problems, though.”

Temperatures will reach a low of 30 degrees, according to Reppert, and with temperatures Sunday afternoon being in the mid-40s, he doesn’t expect much to stick on the ground.

Aaron Tyburski, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, gave a similar assessment of Sunday night’s weather, though he cautions slippery road conditions are possible.

The National Weather Service expects a very light mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain to make its way into York before sunrise.

“Anytime there’s some frozen precipitation, it something significant,” he said, because it significantly increases the potential for dangerous roads.

However, Tyburski said he expects “a couple hundredths of an inch” to fall after midnight.

“There may be some issues, but nothing too bad,” he said.
