COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Tuesday night's winter storm delivered snowfall amounts from 1 inch up to 4 inches in central South Carolina overnight.

According to the National Weather Service in Columbia, Calhoun County saw the highest accumulation in the Midlands with about 4 inches in most of the county.

Irmo had reports of a little over 3 inches.

Areas near Lake Murray in Lexington County and portions of Orangeburg County also reported snowfall amounts ranging from 2-3 inches.

The rest of the Midlands got between 1-2 inches.

Chief Meteorologist John Farley says most of what is on the ground will stick around for a few days.

The temperatures will only climb to the mid-30s today, which won't allow for much of the snow to melt. Wednesday night's temperatures will plummet into the teens. On Thursday, temperatures will climb to the mid 40s, but drop again to around freezing.

Here are the largest ice and snow amounts from each of South Carolina's 46 counties as reported to the National Weather Service. Jasper and Union counties did not have any reports.
