Could South Carolina see the first snow of the season this weekend?


Temperatures in Boston are expected to peak in the low 40s Friday afternoon, and remain in the 30s through Sunday.

Somewhat heavier snow is predicted in a few north Georgia areas. The advisory is in effect from 5 a.m. Friday until 7 a.m. Saturday, with a forecast calling for periods of snow or rain mixed with snow. The higher snow rates will most likely come sometime between 8 a.m. and noon; the precipitation tapers off tomorrow afternoon.

Ground temperatures are in the 50s, since it's been so warm recently, which means snow accumulation on roads will be little, if any.

All rain/snow should come to an end across Acadiana around lunchtime. That is why it's possible some snowflakes survive down into the above-freezing air to mix with the rain at times, but no accumulation is expected south of 85.

Say it ain't going to snow in the Deep South, is it? Brining roads before snowfall prevent snow and ice from bonding to paved surfaces, enabling easy removal.

Right now we continue to have light scattered showers working across the region as the result of a shortwave moving over the region, so check we have the moisture in the atmosphere. Some on the northern edge could see nothing at all, and others on the southern part could see all rain. Be cautious even when temperatures are shown to be near 32 degrees Fahrenheit.

The coldest air will not arrive until Friday night into Saturday morning prompting a concern for the residual water freezing causing "black ice".

It does, however, look like we could see a band of snow with accumulations over one inch.
