Potential for big snowstorm in York next week

Friday's light snow flurries could be just a small preview of what's in store for York County early next week.

Brad Sweitzer Sr., co-founder of Red Lion-based S&S Storm Chasers, said the York area could be looking at up to 15 inches of snow overnight Monday, though it's still too early to make a strong prediction.

John LaCorte, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service, said the possibility of a large snowstorm next week is still too "iffy" to predict, as some models show it missing York County completely.

Paul Walker, a meteorologist for AccuWeather, agreed that it's too early, but said a snowstorm is likely to occur Monday night into Tuesday on the East Coast. The strength and path of the storm are still in question, he added.

Sweitzer said his team will start to get a pretty good idea of what's coming by Saturday, but he believes this is probably the area's last good chance to get a large accumulation this winter.

"Snow lovers could finally get their fix," he said.
