Round Two of Winter Weather Possible for Tues and Weds

web posted February 10, 2014

COUNTY Just two weeks after Edgefield County saw between 3 and 4 inches of snow, the National Weather Service has issued a Special Weather Statement on the increasing chance of sleet and snow falling on Tuesday and Wednesday. The initial statement was released Sunday afternoon saying that two separate lows will cross the area with temperatures topping out Tuesday in the middle 30's then falling below freezing later in the day and overnight and not reaching above freezing all day Wednesday. Chance of precipitation is 70 to 80% both days.

"A number of communities over the interior South may have more significant, longer-lasting ice and snow when compared to the storm from late January," AccuWeather.com Southern Weather Expert Meteorologist Dan Kottlowski said.

The communities at greatest risk lie along the I-20 and I-85 corridors from northern Louisiana to the Carolinas. This includes Vicksburg, Miss., Birmingham, Ala., Augusta and Atlanta, Ga., Columbia and Greenville, S.C., and Charlotte, Raleigh and Greensboro, N.C.

Though some of the latter winter precipitation on Tuesday night and Wednesday may be in the form of snow, sleet and freezing rain is expected first and is expected - under current models - to start midday to early afternoon Tuesday. Tuesday will start off coming from a Monday night low of 37 and will not warm much more than a degree or two during the day.

Winter Storm Watches and Warnings are expected in later updates, the statement said.

At this time the winter weather system is actively being followed and Edgefield Daily will have more updates as official information is released.
