Loving this springlike weather? Winter's last gasp is coming...
Odds are, you've been enjoying above-average temperatures during this, the first week of spring.
But meteorologists warn that a polar vortex could bring winter's last gasp this weekend.
“Thanks to a developing atmospheric traffic jam near Greenland, the jet stream is about to get some sizable buckles in it,” according to AccuWeather meteorologist Paul Pastelok.
That will mean noticeably colder temperatures across the eastern half of the country — including as far south as Nashville, Tennessee — this weekend and continuing through the beginning of April.
In York County, the National Weather Service forecast calls for overnight lows dipping below freezing again on Saturday and Sunday night, in addition to periods of rainfall through Saturday.
Here's what the weather looks like over the next few days, according to the weather service:
Today: Cloudy, with a high near 57. Northeast wind around 5 mph.
