Cold rain, some wintry weather possible Friday

Cold rain, some wintry weather possible Friday

While the possibility of snow in the midlands was bandied about earlier this week, Linton says that the best possibility for it would fall Friday evening into Saturday, and shouldn't be a threat east of Piedmont. Most of the models show most (if any) accumulation staying north of us in parts of Metro Atlanta and along I-85 in North Georgia.

As a general rule, snow is a rarity in Beaufort County, happening "maybe once a year" according to Lamb.

While this won't be a major winter storm, moisture riding north of a weak area of low pressure in the Gulf of Mexico Thursday night through Friday should result in some wet snow or sleet across portions of the U.S. South.

AMOUNTS: Snow accumulation should be generally 1 inch or less, mostly on grassy areas and elevated surfaces.

Area roads will stay wet as they are too warm to accumulate snow, therefore travel late Friday night and early Saturday morning should not be hazardous. Once again, a small slushy accumulation is possible on non-paved surfaces.

One small concern will be the potential to see black ice late Friday night and Saturday morning as temperatures fall into the upper 20s and low 30s. Watch for last-minute forecast changes; if you are using a forecast more than six hours old, it is bad information.

Cold temperatures and rainy weather will stick around the Houston area over the next couple days, making way for a possible appearance of sleet or snow, according to the National Weather Service. Highs in the upper 50s to the lower 60s.

NEXT WEEK AND BEYOND: No change with the a trough remaining in place over the eastern third of the nation, and the overall pattern looks dry with below average temperatures for next week.

"Get ready for a cold and rainy day in the wake of the cold front", WWL-TV Meteorologist Dave Nussbaum said.

Have a great day!
