If you're out and about in York County, there's a good chance you could spot a snowflake or two — or possibly more.

According to National Weather Service forecasters, a mix of rain and snow is likely to fall starting Tuesday afternoon and evening. However, temperatures hovering above freezing likely mean that any snow will transition to rain by mid-morning on Wednesday.

So far, at least, none of the white stuff is expected to stick on the ground for long.

The NWS issued winter weather advisories for a large swath of central and northern Pennsylvania through Wednesday morning, stopped short of issuing an advisory for York County. The advisories included Cumberland and Franklin counties.

Temperatures will range between 30 and 47 degrees on Wednesday, with the coldest weather expected overnight. Gusts as high as 22 mph are possible Wednesday.

The snow chances will dissipate but the cold temperatures will persist the rest of the week in York County. Here is the outlook from the National Weather Service for the next several days:
