House and Senate leaders are watching the weather forecast closely today to decide whether to cancel or delay this week's legislative session.
Senate president pro tempore John Courson, R-Richland, said he will decide by Monday afternoon whether to cancel the Senate session scheduled for Tuesday.
Weather forecasters are calling for snow -- as much as 3 inches -- from the coast to the Midlands. The winter weather could linger into Wednesday as well.
Courson said he would "hate to cancel the session," but he wants to make a decision early enough for the handful of senators who come to town on Monday night.

In the House, the decision is up to Speaker Bobby Harrell. Spokesman Greg Foster did not give a timetable for Harrell's decision.
