York City streets were nearly empty as Saturday's storm raged through the morning, but this group of four braved the elements near the York Expo Center's Carlisle Avenue gates Saturday, Jan. 23, 2016.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for York County that will be in effect Monday night until Wednesday morning as their predictions for snow accumulation in the area grow.

NWS meteorologist Rob Radzanowski said the county should see 4-8 inches of accumulation with less potentially in the northern parts of the county.

Residents should expect to wake up to 1-2 inches Tuesday morning, which could have a heavy impact on the morning commute, he said.

Tom Kines, a meteorologist at AccuWeather, agreed that 1-2 inches of snow will likely accumulate overnight, but he said it's tough to predict how much may accumulate in the county throughout Tuesday.

"(York County will get) at least a few more inches (Tuesday), could be more," Kines said.

Snow will begin falling between 7-10 p.m. Monday, he said.
