Could South Carolina see the first snow of the season this weekend?

It's going to be another cold wet windy day in New Orleans forecasters with the National Weather Service said Thursday. There's a 100 chance of rain and temperatures won't climb higher than 47 degrees during the day. Thursday night the temper

Cold air moving in from the northwest will result in rain mixing with and changing to snow beginning late Thursday night and early Friday morning.

And... a Winter Storm Warning has been issued for parts of southwest Alabama and southeast MS, with 1 to 3 inches possible in the warning area. Snow may hit parts of Louisiana and MS by the Friday morning commute.

As of Thursday, the models showed that the chances of snow in the Columbia area are of 1 percent, Lancaster 13 percent, Winnsboro an 8 percent and Newberry 10 percent.

Say it ain't going to snow in the Deep South, is it?

The weather service issued winter weather advisories for areas from Louisiana to Georgia, including Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Hattiesburg, Mississippi; and Birmingham, Alabama.

Any snow accumulations will be dependent on temperatures and precipitation intensity. Soil temperatures are around 50 degrees, and that will greatly limit the accumulation potential. Brining roads before snowfall prevent snow and ice from bonding to paved surfaces, enabling easy removal.

Nobody should be driving summer interstate speeds in winter weather.

"A weak system is expected to bring light snow to parts of the area later today and tonight".

After a warmer than normal fall the colder than normal temperatures are expected to stick around into the second half of December. There remain options on the table for this forecast to change.

A warm-up will begin Friday, with temperatures rising to around 56 degrees.
