Just when you thought you were out of winter... winter pulls you back in.

Such is the case this week as one more blast of wintry weather — and possible snow accumulation — is expected beginning Thursday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.

For now, both the NWS and AccuWeather are calling for less than an inch of snow in York County, although the storm is expected to bring mix of rain, sleet and snow.
