Although daffodils are pushing up in Lancaster County, the area is under a winter storm watch Sunday.
According to the National Weather Service, a winter storm watch has been issued for Sunday night through Monday morning.
The weather service says colder air will begin to filter into the area from the north and will cause the rain in the area to change to snow Sunday night. Sleet is also possible. By Monday, the storm will begin to move away from the area and the precipitation will end.
The exact track and strength of the storm is uncertain and will have an effect on snowfall totals, but the weather service said that snowfall totals of 1 to 3 inches are possible by Monday morning.
Sunday’s high will be 41 degrees, with a low of 26. Monday’s high will be a cold 36, with a low of 21. Temperatures will rebound on Monday, with a high of 49, and Tuesday, which will reach 54.
If Lancaster County schools are delayed or closed Monday morning, the school district will get in touch with parents through its ConnectEd automated phone-call system.
School delays or closings will also be posted on the school district Web site, www.lancasterscschools.org or on LearnTV, cable channel 18.
