If you want to see a snowflake or two in York County this weekend, you may have to get up awfully early to see them — if you get to see them at all. 

The National Weather Service in State College is forecasting a 20% chance of that happening Saturday night after 1 a.m. The forecast is for a mix of rain and snow to fall with a low of around 32 degrees. 

Otherwise, it will be getting colder. Friday’s high will be near 45 degrees with a north wind blowing around 6 mph. Friday night’s low will be near 25.
