South Carolina: Snow, ice hours away

Winter storm to hit South Carolina, North Carolina this weekend

The main event moves overnight from Saturday to Sunday



Well, we’re only hours away from the winter storm we talked about, and we have a winter storm warning. This was seen earlier. All of these areas in pink have been upgraded to a warning as we are expected to see more ice accumulation along with snowfall accumulations in the mountains north of the state. You will see basically all the snow. But look at this, that’s the main area of ​​interest here. Ice Storm Warning Anywhere from 1/10 to even an inch of ice is possible. Alberton, Abbeville, Greenwood, Lawrence Union. Now we’ll see some ice buildup in other areas. This will only be the area of ​​greatest interest. We also have a winter storm monitor for parts of northeastern Georgia, and a mix of snow and ice in your area as well. So right now, 1/10 to a quarter of an inch of ice will be the average across the north in areas where there is a warning, it will be higher, maybe up to an inch and that of course almost guarantees a blackout. So we’re expecting intermittent power outages as we continue all day tomorrow. Above that ice, some electricity poles, power lines, and trees await. We will also have very gale-force winds. Look at those 30 and 50 mph winds with great force as we start tomorrow morning and continue throughout the afternoon. Here’s the low pressure area. This is the main event before that. We have some rain as you get a little closer, it will take us several hours for the temperatures to be cooler. So we’re looking at a lot of it starting with snow and then snowing on its backside as well. So let’s take a look. Here comes this low pressure area driving south of us again, we’ll see a few scattered showers today tonight but the main event won’t continue until after 9 or 10. That’s when we’ll see the most prevalent overnight and early tomorrow morning you’ll wake up to a bit of snowfall for most of us across the North. But then we’ll see this transition and that’s where we’ll get to this sleet, freezing rain, kind of a tumbling mess. And then on the reverse side of this, we’ll get a little bit more snowfall adding to that gross buildup before that kind of cold air settles down and stays in place. Here’s a closer look when we go to tonight. You’ll see three in the afternoon, we’ll see possible showers. This is the way before that storm but we’ll have some of that as we go all afternoon, heading into this evening, we’ll start to see a little bit of freezing rain maybe in some areas snow on the mountains. But here you see, here 2:30 tomorrow morning, a lot of snowfall for the mountains is all snow in the northern part of the state mostly snow. And then in some of our southern counties it might get a little bit of dust a couple of gusts, but it’s almost immediately going to freezing rain there first and then that line will slowly advance northward sort of covering the Greenville area of ​​Spartanburg around 89 ten in the morning. This move to the north a little bit and then here we go to the back side where we go to 678 AM tomorrow. That’s when we’ll see all this transition into snowfall. But drier air will flow in at the same time. So it will decrease very quickly in terms of total snowfall. This is still an estimate here. Some of us will end up on the lower side, and some of us will probably end up a little higher. Places like travelers rest as you get north of I 85 here, just shy of that line, you can see isolated areas of four or five inches. No problem. Maybe a little more. But you see when you head so far south you’re looking at a trail or just dust and hardly anything in terms of accretion. Here we go today, cold air 44 degrees high, going down to about 30 high tomorrow it will be cold, loud stuff falling from the sky. It’s going to be a day when you don’t want to be outdoors, and then Monday comes slick places. Black ice on mountain roads throughout the northern region as well. So make sure to stay wary of that. And then in the mountains it will be a long period of black ice on the roads of the region until Tuesday morning as well, mm hmm, mm hmm.
