Big snowstorm could threaten York County next week

Could York County face a major winter storm next week?

Maybe, D. J. Hoffman, meteorologist with AccuWeather.com, said late Friday night.

The low-pressure system currently is in the Gulf of Alaska, he said. It will move across the country and eventually merge off the North or South Carolina coast.

Right now, two scenarios exist:

  • The low-pressure system moves out to sea, and it would be cloudy and unseasonably cold for York County.
  • Or the system moves up the coastline, which would bring wind-driven snow to York County.

“The models are not in agreement,” he said.

By Sunday and Monday, forecasters should have a better idea of what this storm is going to do, Hoffman said. The timing of the storm is expected to be Tuesday night into Wednesday.

National weather websites, such as The Weather Channel and WeatherBug, are talking about this storm, as is Eric Horst, director of the Millersville University Weather Information Center. Horst has even posted a storm outlook map.

So stay tuned.
