First Alert Day Wednesday: Rain and snow move out, but icy roads will be a problem tonight

A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect until 7 pm for the following counties: Fairfield, Kershaw, Newberry.

A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until 7 pm for the following counties: Lee, Lexington, Richland, Saluda, Sumter.

Your WIS First Alert Weather Team continues to track some wintry weather moving through the area, but once the threat of rain and snow moves out, we'll be left with slick roads.

As we move through your Wednesday afternoon and evening, rain and snow will continue moving east through the Midlands. Some light snow accumulations are possible, especially in areas where temperatures have fallen toward freezing. Otherwise, expect a little snow to accumulate on grassy surfaces. Where we've seen the rain, don't expect any accumulations.

For tonight, the system bringing this wintry weather will be far to our east, giving way to clearing skies. However, the big hazard tonight into Thursday morning will be on the roads. Temperatures will fall into the teens and 20s tonight. So, any lingering snow or moisture still on the ground will freeze for several locations, creating black ice. Bridges and overpasses will freeze first. Be careful on the roads tonight into Thursday morning.

We're expecting sunshine and highs in the 40s by Thursday afternoon.

 

Tonight: Clearing Skies. Cold. Icy Roads Likely.  Low temperatures in the teens and 20s.

Thursday: Mostly Sunny and Chilly. Highs in the mid and upper 40s.

Friday: Mostly Sunny and Mild. Highs in the mid and upper 50s.
