Weather Watch Forecast

web posted January 28, 2014

COUNTY Edgefield County will begin feeling the brunt of the winter weather about mid-morning today and will see accumulations of up to 3 inches during the first 5 hours of the storm. Up to a 1/2 inch of ice and sleet could arrive prior to the snow event. During the latter half of Tuesday accumulations are expected to increase by another 2 inches.

Snow will continue into early Wednesday morning with additional snow with an additional accumulation of 1 to 2 inches. Some localized areas could see 8 inches and could reach as high as 12 inches, depending on location and conditions, according to various weather forecasts. The high on Wednesday will not rise above freezing and the low will drop to between 12 and 10 degrees overnight.

Snow should end later in the afternoon. However, conditions will worsen as temperatures drop into the teens very quickly and will freeze any melted snow on the roadways causing "black ice". Do not drive during this time period unless it is an emergency.

The Edgefield County Emergency Operations Command center (EOC) will be activated Tuesday morning. A "soft opening" was activated on Monday, Emergency Management Director Mike Casey said, to make sure all radios and equipment were functioning properly.

Edgefield Daily will be in constant contact with the EOC to bring you alerts as they are made available.
