Rain down here, snow up there

Forecasters late Thursday were calling for a major winter storm to bring three inches to a foot of snow north of Charlotte and a rain-sleet mix for the mountains north of Greenville and Pickens in the Upstate.

But for most of the Midlands, it might seem like the rain out there simply won't go away.

Another wave in a set of rainy weather fronts out of the Gulf of Mexico is washing over the Midlands and east to Charleston and Beaufort. It's expected to keep pouring at least through tonight and into Saturday morning. An inch or two of rain could fall, said Jonathan Lamb, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

And today will be cold, too. The high in the Midlands is expected to reach only 40.
