The aftershock of winter is not over yet as York County prepares for its second snow of the spring.

Winter Storm Toby dumped about a foot of snow in the county on March 20-21, in the first two days of the season, and now another few inches are expected after Easter.

A winter weather advisory was issued Sunday, April 1, by the National Weather Service for York, Adams and Lancaster Counties.

According to the advisory, 2 to 5 inches of snowfall is expected in the region Sunday night into Monday, April 2.

The advisory will remain in effect until 10 a.m. Monday.

"This system is moving in at the right time coming in (Sunday) night with temperatures marginally cold — cold enough for snow," said National Weather Service meteorologist Matt Steinbugl.

Easy come, easy go: Temperatures will rise to the 40s and 50s during the day on Monday, so Steinbugl said the snow should melt quickly.

But drivers could see slushy or snow-covered roads, especially at higher elevations, he said. 

Tuesday and Wednesday might be rainy, with drier weather the rest of the week, Steinbugl said

Steinbugl said there are no signs yet of temperatures warming up to the average of 50s and 60s for this time of year. Temperatures will be cooler than average for the first part of April.
