The mountains of South Carolina could get a coat of snow this week, but forecasters don’t expect frozen precipitation to make it to the Midlands.

Even the mountain forecast is iffy, depending on the timing of two cold fronts arriving in rapid succession. The first front has more precipitation potential, likely bringing rain to the Midlands Monday night.

The second front should bring temperatures down below freezing again in Columbia late Wednesday or early Thursday, but that front is forecast to have little moisture. The snow potential is slim even in downtown Greenville.

The Greenville National Weather Service’s forecast discussion, however, mentions the possibility of one to two inches of snow in the mountains of South Carolina and North Carolina, which would be a welcome sight at the North Carolina ski resorts prepping for their traditionally biggest weekend of the year.
