Some snow fell in Lexington and counties north of Columbia, but little if any accumulated on paved surfaces.

Lexington, Saluda, Newberry, Fairfield and Kershaw county public schools will operate on a two-hour delay. In Lexington 3, 3- and 4-year-old morning preschool programs are closed, but the afternoon programs will operate as normal. Also, the district will not serve breakfast.

Snow started moving into western Lexington County around 5 p.m., and flakes were falling in Lexington by 8 p.m. But above-freezing temperatures limited accumulation. National Weather Service observers reported 1.75 inches in Saluda by 8 p.m., an inch of snow in Edgefield by 6:15 p.m., a quarter-inch in Batesburg by 6 p.m. and .2 inches in Lexington at 8 p.m.

While snow had been falling off-and-on in Greenville all day, it was mixed with rain and didn't stick much. Only a half inch was reported on the ground in Greenville at 6 p.m.
