South Carolina: Winter storm watch issued

Well, Happy Friday everyone, we have a winter storm watch in effect across the entire viewing area. It’s a bit rare for the northern region to be included in one of these mountains and it’s likely that the mountains will be upgraded to a warning sometime later today. But this is what it looks like now. At 4,000 feet in the mountains, the snow can be about 12 to 20 inches in the lower elevations in the mountains, and the snow can be about 6 to 12 inches high. Then in the northern part of the state anything from dust or trail up to five inches mixed with snow, sleet, and occasional freezing rain. This of course our main concern is not the accumulation of snow but the accumulation of snow giving us some road effects on some of the dangerous journeys. Of course, intermittent outages between 1/10 and a quarter of an inch from ice buildup seem most likely, but there will be areas that end up on the higher end of that. So certainly a power outage to the body is a possibility. Not only will the ice build up, but look at these very high winds already rolling in overnight and early Sunday, from 40 to 55 mph. Wind gusts are certainly possible as time goes on throughout the day on Sunday. So just one more thing to be aware of when we take a look outside, it’s going to be a great Friday. It’s really going to be in the mid-50s today. But here comes that area of ​​low pressure that will follow directly south and I mean just our south. So things are going as we get closer to tomorrow evening. But Sunday will be the day of the greatest impact. And then on the back side of that lower low we will continue to see some of these influences into Sunday night. So here’s a closer look at what to expect. You can see as we go all out tomorrow evening, we’ll see a little bit of snowfall. But here come Sunday morning, we’ll see some snowfall across the area anywhere from 2 to 4 inches right now, I think basically a good guest along and north of I 85 A dust to an inch, maybe up to two a little further south. And of course as you go up in the mountains these backlogs will increase, and we will continue to adjust this as we go forward. But it seems likely that we will see some snow accumulation. It’s just a matter of how much of that will end up in freezing rain. So we have the effect of today tomorrow, especially tomorrow night, and then of course a wake-up day on Sunday, when all of this happens to be a good day indoors. Guys, we’ll keep you updated as we go along, mm hmm
