System could bring a few rare Nov. flakes to Midlands

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Some people in the Midlands could see some wet snow flakes late Tuesday into Wednesday, but don't get out the ice scrapers and snow shovels just yet.

The coldest air of the season is due to reach the region Tuesday evening, according to First Alert Meteorologist John Farley. Accompanying the cold air is a pocket of moisture that will affect the area Tuesday night.

"Could we see a flake or two? Yes," said Farley. "Do not change your plans. This will not have any impact on us."

The best chance of a shower is from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. During that time frame, temperatures will range from the 40s to middle 50s.

As the back end of the front goes through, it's not out of the question that a few wet snow flakes could be mixed in. If that happens, the most likely counties to see any snowflakes are north of Columbia in the following counties: Lancaster, Chester, Chesterfield, Fairfield, Newberry, Darlington, Lee and Kershaw. 

"Any flakes that are spotted will not accumulate, so just enjoy the view," said Farley.

"This isn't going to amount to anything if it happens at all," said Farley.

Behind the system, it will be very dry, windy and cold. Expect highs on Wednesday to be in the 40s. You can expect a hard freeze Wednesday night into Thursday morning.
