York County commuters should see no impact from the snow in the forecast Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service. 

A light snow is expected to start around 1 p.m. Jan. 7, said David Martin, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service. 

Roughly half an inch of snow will accumulate, he added.

Martin said commuters shouldn't be affected while driving, as temperatures will be above freezing, limiting slippery conditions. 

"It's a very minor event compared to what could happen this time of year," Martin said. "It should be OK."
