South Carolina could see some more snow Friday
well, we had a beautiful Tuesday, lots of sunshine and somewhat warmer temperatures, which allowed us to see a little more snow and ice melt, which really helped some of the secondary roads. But for many of us, those temperatures drop to below freezing and they wake up early Wednesday morning, which still allows for some icy conditions on the roadway. So take it slow, especially on the secondary roads. Otherwise it will still be nice and dry most of today and we are going to see those temperatures a bit warmer. When you look at the big picture, you may see a patchy shower over higher altitudes. Otherwise, what we need to focus on is our next chance for not only rain but also winter weather forecast towards our west, it will eventually be the next system still under development and we will start to see that it really start working on and getting more organized over the next few hours, and especially as we approach the end of the day today where the rain is coming. This strong cold front will really bring in not just the rain but also much colder temperatures. So late today the rain comes and continues until Thursday, we will sometimes see periods of moderate to even heavy rain, but this will continue through most of the day Thursday, then make the umbrella ready, the rainwear ready. This will also help to ideally wash away any bit of the icy conditions away on the secondary roads, but note on Friday that much colder air is coming. So we're talking about temperatures in the forties and fifties today and tomorrow, and then the temperatures will not come until the thirties on Friday. And as the colder air begins to penetrate, we have that chance of winter weather. We're still getting a handle on these models, but overall things tend to look at least a little bit of winter weather at the end of the week. Now look at these high temperatures today, we are talking about winter weather, but temperatures this afternoon well into the fifties for many of us. So especially more southern counties may be in the upper fifties, so really helps that melt away that remnants of snow and ice. So we'll see some improvements there. But let's map things out as things get more organized from the west and northwest. This cold front arrives late in the day. Today you might see a spotted Sprinkle near sunset. Otherwise, most of the rain will move in late tonight. Gets us in on Thursday. So again, this is part of some heavy rain at times, and this will continue for most of your Thursday. We get a dry time, but generally it will be a wet Thursday. Well, something that's really interesting about this system, and something that we'll have to keep a close eye on, is along this cold front, a low pressure is developing, and that low pressure is what's really going to help filter the colder air in and the potential for winter weather. So models are still not consistent with how far north and northwest. This wintry weather will continue to move in at this point, it looks like we will be grazed by at least a little bit of snow and some of the wintry weather as the colder air begins to filter in from the north with this low pressure, it begins to move through Friday afternoon, gets us into the hours of the night and then goes quickly out to the east and southeast. So it's a quick outbreak of maybe some winter weather. But again, we've got a lot of fine-tuning with this forecast over the next few days for today. Take it still slowly on some of the secondary roads, but otherwise good and mild temperatures that peak in the mid-fifties, nice and quiet for today, and then the rain comes as we come in late at night and into Thursday, then we see a drastic drop in these temperatures we get ourselves to Friday, which probably affects your Friday for the potential for a little snow, and so thank you ready for the weekend. But overall, these temperatures are trending a bit on the cool side. When we get past this wintry system at the end of the week
South Carolina could see some more snow Friday
We should get a better handle on what to expect on Friday in terms of winter weather in Upstate and western North Carolina. Right now, we know that a cold front is arriving late Wednesday through Thursday, primarily bringing rain to the area. Temperatures will take a dive on Friday, allowing for winter weather in our area. Models are still trying to get a handle on the timing and impacts of the potential winter weather as we are still a few days out. The video below is Futurecast radar showing what may be coming our way: Right now, the models are getting better agreement that the peak of activity will move in the second half of the day on Friday as temperatures drop and the winter weather is coming. There are still doubts about quantities, traces and the strength of the system. We will continue to fine-tune this weather forecast over the next few days. Live radar below:
