The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for Cumberland County from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday.

NWS says a mix of precipitation will fall on the area, with a forecast of up to two inches of snow and a light glaze of ice. Temperatures are expected to reach 36 degrees during the day.

The ABC27 forecast calls for light snow to push into the Midstate as early as 6 a.m. Sunday. The best chance for accumulating snow through the early afternoon will be over the ridge and valley region, Franklin County including South Mountain, and areas north of Harrisburg. For areas south of I-81, warm air will quickly flood into the storm, so any snow changes to sleet and then rain.

Southern areas likely only see a coating to an inch of snow before this changeover to rain happens. 1 to 3 inches of snow are possible for northern areas, but even for these locations the mild air will put an end to the snow and change it to rain by evening.
