There's a chance of freezing rain Tuesday night along a stretch from Lancaster through Horry counties, according to the National Weather Service.
The agency has issued a freezing rain advisory from 10 p.m. Tuesday until 10 a.m. Wednesday for Lancaster, Chesterfield, Marlboro, Marion, Darlington, Florence, Dillon and Horry counties. Only the northern portions of most counties should get cold enough, soon enough to lead to icing.
Accumulations, if there are any, are expected to be light, in the hundredths of an inch. That’s not usually enough to crack limbs and cause major power outages, but any ice can make roads especially treacherous.
In the Columbia area, temperatures are forecast to hover just above freezing, though a cold rain is expected through early Wednesday.
