With winter-like temperatures gripping the Midlands for the next few days, so comes with them the chance of snow, National Weather Service officials say.
But forecasts are always tricky.
According to the weather service, rain is likely Thursday and Thursday evening, continuing Friday morning. As temperatures drop from a high of 45 Friday afternoon to a low near 35 Friday evening, there is a 30 percent chance that snow could fall between 5 and 7 Saturday morning.
As it is beautiful, the snow will be evanescent. Saturday afternoon sunshine will peek through the clouds, bringing a high of 44.
The Anderson-Greenville-Spartanburg area, meanwhile, could see a half-inch of snow Friday. But there’s still a potential for freezing rain, with the higher elevations possibly getting a tenth of an inch of ice.
