First Alert Day For Winter Weather Across The Midlands

A Winter Weather Advisory until 7PM for the following counties: Richland, Saluda, Lee, Lexington,

A Winter Storm WARNING until 7PM  for the following counties: Newberry, Fairfield, Kershaw, Chesterfield and Lancaster. 

The long awaited cold front will be here today giving us a good chance of light accumulating snow across many places in the Midlands.  There are a number of factors at play that could blossom our snow totals and lower them as well.

Temperatures will be the key over the next few hours as anything that falls will be as rain until we reach the lower 30s.  Then look for a rain/snow mix, then the changeover to snow.  Roads, driveways, sidewalks, handrails…generally any surface outside will become slippery.  Use caution!  Snow will end by late afternoon then skies start to clear.

Snow accumulations could change with future updates

Snow Accumulations:

Northern Midlands: 2-3" locations in Lancaster and Chesterfield counties could see local amounts of 3"+

Central Midlands: 1" – 2"

Southern Midlands:  0-.50"

Forecast:

First Alert Today:  Rain, rain/snow mix changing to light snow by mid-morning.  Temperatures falling during the day.  Highs in the 40s early falling to lower to middle 30s by late afternoon. Chance of snow 80%

Tonight: Clear and much colder.  Lows in the upper teens

Thursday:  Mostly sunny and chilly.  Highs upper 40s
