...SNOW AND BLACK ICE EXPECTED ACROSS PARTS OF THE WESTERN
CAROLINAS AND NORTHEAST GEORGIA TONIGHT AND WEDNESDAY MORNING...
.A strong cold front will cross the region through tonight. A
band of mainly light precipitation and quickly falling
temperatures will accompany the front as it passes. Although the
precipitation begin as rain in many areas, it should quickly mix
with and change to light snow. Although the amount of snow will be
light in most areas, generally on the order of around an inch or
less across much of the area, with 1-3 inches across portions of
the Piedmont, quickly falling temperatures may allow the snow to
stick, and/or any water on untreated roads to quickly freeze,
resulting in numerous travel problems early Wednesday, including
during the morning rush. The snow should end by midday Wednesday,
although cold temperatures continuing through the day are expected
to result in only gradual improvement to road conditions.
...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 10 PM THIS
EVENING TO NOON EST WEDNESDAY...
* WHAT...Snow and black ice expected. Plan on slippery road
conditions, including during the morning commute on Wednesday.
Around an inch or less of snow is expected across the
foothills, with one to three inches across much of the Piedmont.
* WHERE...Portions of upstate South Carolina and piedmont and
western North Carolina.
* WHEN...From 10 PM this evening to noon EST Wednesday.
* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Be prepared for reduced visibilities at
times. Very cold temperatures surging into the area late tonight
and early tomorrow morning will allow any moisture on roads to
quickly freeze, so even locations that receive little snow
accumulation tonight will likely see travel problems Wednesday
morning. Temperatures remaining at or below freezing
will result in only slow improvement in travel conditions
through the day tomorrow.
A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means periods of snow will
cause primarily travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered
roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.
