Some areas of York County have nearly 4 inches of snow

Some areas of York County saw nearly 4 inches of snow Saturday, but the precipitation should be over in time for Sunday's New Year's Eve festivities.

National Weather Service meteorologist Craig Evanego said the snow started after midnight, dropping the heaviest amounts in Manchester (3.8 inches), Manchester Township (3 inches), Mount Wolf (3 ½ inches), York Haven (3 inches) and Hanover (3 inches).

Accuweather reported 3.8 inches in East Manchester Township, with about 2 to 4 inches throughout the county, according to senior meteorologist, Paul Walker.

Stewartstown, in the southern part of the county, saw less accumulation, with about 1.4 inches, Evanego said.

The "accumulating snow (is) just about over," he said.

Snow accumulation should be over by afternoon Saturday, he said, and there will be no snow or other precipitation on Sunday.

"The next couple of days are going to be dry in York," Walker said, which will continue into the middle of next week.

But it will be "very cold," Evanego said.

Sunday will have a high in the upper teens, and it will be breezy.

"You're gonna be looking at windchills to start the day in the single digits below zero," Evanego said, which will rise above zero by the afternoon but drop back below again tomorrow evening into tomorrow night.

Walker said York County will see a high of 21 degrees tomorrow, dropping down to 6 degrees tomorrow night.

With wind chill, he said it will feel like 4 to 6 below zero.

"It's gonna be very cold for those going out New Year's Eve," Evanego said.

Monday will be back up to the low 20s, and the county will see a break in the cold by Wednesday before "another shot of cold air" at the end of next week, Walker said.

Both advise to be cautious of the roads freezing from the snow.

The "accumulation should stick around for a while," Walker said, but winds during the day "will keep the snow moving."
