Winter weather is here

January 16, 2008

There is a Winter Weather Advisory in effect for the central and northern half of the CSRA, including the cities of Augusta, Aiken, and Thomson, from 7pm until 3am Thursday morning.

Due to the weather, Edgefield and Saluda County schools are on a two-hour delay Thursday. (Edgefield County has a one-hour delay for staff.)

Snow and sleet have been reported in several counties, including Burke, Columbia, Richmond, and Warren.

If you see any winter weather, take a photo or video and share it here!

Freezing temperatures and rain overnight could make for slippery driving overnight and early Thursday morning.

Low pressure is developing in the Gulf of Mexico Wednesday and will move northeast along the South Carolina coast Thursday. Rain will move into the CSRA continuing through Thursday morning.

Some sleet may be mixed with the rain after 11pm Wednesday night but no accumulation is expected for most of the CSRA. Northern counties stand the best chance of seeing any wintery mix.

If you're traveling, the North Georgia mountains and upstate South Carolina have the best chance for accumulating snow and ice. Drive with caution especially over bridges and overpasses because they are the first to freeze.

StormTeam 12 is keeping a close eye on this system throughout the day and night and will keep you updated on any storm watches along with your Hour By Hour forecast.
