1-2 inches of snow expected in York County Tuesday

Yorkers can expect some snowfall Tuesday morning, Jan. 16.

"About an inch or two at most," said AccuWeather meteorologist Brett Rossio, who said there would be a dusting on the roads.

Paul Head, meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said it will begin after the morning commute and snow lightly into the evening.

He said an Alberta clipper, a snow system coming in from Canada, will reach western Pennsylvania on Monday afternoon, but it will be another 18 hours until it hits the southern areas of the state.

Rossio agreed the snow will start in the afternoon, following through to the evening.

Temperatures will reach highs in the low 20s, Head said.

Rossio said Tuesday's forecast shows a high of 33 degrees, though it will drop down to 13 degrees at night.

Both meteorologists say York County will see warmer weather again for the weekend.

A ridge will bring warmer air up from the South, Rossio said, with temperatures in the upper 40s to the 50s for Saturday and Sunday.

"That will allow the teeter-totter to lift in our favor," Rossio said.
