A frosty bite from Old Man Winter expected Easter morning
It may be spring, but Old Man Winter still wants to hang on for just a bit longer.
A freeze warning is in effect early on Easter Sunday morning for York and surrounding counties, according to the National Weather Service in State College.
The freeze warning will extend from 2 to 10 a.m. Sunday morning with temperatures as low as 30 degrees possible in rural areas of York County. Larger suburban areas can expect temperatures between 33 and 35 degrees.
Frost and freeze conditions can kill crops and other sensitive vegetation, so precautions should be made to protect those plants. Also, low temps can possibly damage unprotected outdoor plumbing, the weather service said.
Before that happens, Saturday’s high temperature will be near 53 with cloudy conditions. Those clouds will gradually clear, which will lead to conditions getting colder. A low temperature around 34 is predicted but could go lower depending how fast cloudy conditions clear.
Easter Sunday temperatures will warm up quickly with the forecast calling for a high temperature of around 60.
