Winter Storm Forecast for Edgefield County Tuesday and Wednesday

web posted January 27, 2014

COUNTY With what may be the first and only major winter storm of 2014 for the Edgefield County area, forecasters are calling for between 3 to 6 inches of snow being possible starting Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday. According to AccuWeather.com, Edgefield County lies right in the middle of the heaviest frozen participation Tuesday with a low in the mid-twenties. Snowfall is expected to continue well into Wednesday with a high only reaching the mid 30's.

Precipitation is placed at between 80% and 90% during the two-day period.

According to forecasts, the snow line will be well above the I-20 corridor and will reach all the way to the coastal areas. Localized forecasts for Edgefield County show accumulations of between 2 to 4 inches. To make matters worse, the initial phase of frozen precipitation may be in the form of sleet and frozen rain.

If that is the case, there is a possibility of downed power lines as ice and then snow accumulate and the increased chances of trees falling on power lines creating power outages in the area.

Lows both nights will be in the mid to lower 20's and highs in the low to middle 30's.

Temperatures will rise to the middle 40's on Thursday.

Edgefield Daily has contacted the county and the Edgefield County School District in the event the winter weather materializes. We will provide updates and closings as they are announced around the clock. Edgefield Daily will operate on emergency power in the event of power failures.

Be advised that bridges and overpasses will be the first to freeze and driving conditions could become hazardous quickly. Please use extreme caution if you must drive in such conditions.

Edgefield Daily will provide constant updates during the expected winter event. In the event of power failure at your home, we advise you tune your radios to our news partner WGAC 580 AM and 95.1 FM or the National Weather Service for updates.
