The overnight snowstorm dumped more snow than predicted across York County, finally putting the snow plows to good use after an unseasonably warm winter.

Newberry Township got the most — 7 inches — from the storm that began late Thursday night, according to the National Weather Service. West Manchester was second with 6.5 inches.

Other areas in the county, including York City, reported between 3 to 6 inches in accumulation, NWS said.

All York County school districts switched to virtual learning Friday. The county courthouse also delayed opening until 10 a.m.

However, all speed limit and vehicle restrictions placed last night in anticipation of the snowstorm had been lifted Friday morning.

Along with the snow,  the storm brought freezing temperatures to the area. The rest of Friday should be partly cloudy with a low of 15 degrees.
