Snow in Spring? Flakes possible overnight in York County

Although spring sprang Sunday, it is possible that snow could fall Monday morning before sunup, forecasters say.

The National Weather Service forecast for Rock Hill Sunday posted around 8 p.m. showed the possibility of rain then potentially turning to snow after 2 a.m. – although no accumulation is expected. Temperatures will be in the low 30s.

The white stuff and cold temperatures are just the latest in topsy turvy weather after an unusually warm past month has sent spring plants into bloom earlier than normal.

The possible snow comes as lows Monday and Tuesday are expected to drop close to freezing or below.

And those lows come after temperatures reached the mid-80s on Wednesday. And temperatures are expected back in the 70s by Wednesday.

But first - cold and rain or snow.

Tuesday morning is expected to be even colder, with forecasts by the weather service of 30 degrees and a few others saying the upper 20s.

Extended cold below freezing can possibly affect fruit crops such as strawberries and peach buds.
