“We’re not going to be seeing any great accumulations over any given time," Tyburski said.

The weather service issued a winter weather advisory starting 5 a.m. Tuesday until 1 p.m. Wednesday. The advisory states 3 to 5 inches of snow are expected, but Tyburski said that won't happen in York County.

He said 3 to 5 inches should be seen to the east of York County, in areas such as Lancaster County.

The advisory was issued for other counties, including Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, and Lancaster.

Tyburski warned that some areas like sidewalks, parking lots and back roads may be slippery during Tuesday's snowfall.
