Winter Storm Watch in effect through Saturday


The National Weather Service out of Columbia has issued a Winter Storm Watch for Clarendon County and surrounding areas in the midlands through Saturday afternoon.

Low pressure will track across the northern Floria peninsula Friday night and move northeastward away from the Carolina coast on Saturday. This system will enhance moisture across the area and, combined with the cold temperatures in place, result in snow and other wintry conditions. This is likely to cause travel difficulties Friday and Saturday.

Rain will change to snow late Friday night. Snow will taper off by early Saturday afternoon. Accumulations across the state could be 2-4 inches. Manning could see about an inch.

The snow could create covered roads and produce scattered power outages. Impacts may continue well after the snow ends. Overnight lows will be between 10 and 15 degrees.

Temperatures will drop below freezing Friday night, with lows in the upper 20s on Saturday morning.

A winter storm watch means there is a potential for significant snow, sleet or ice accumulations that may impact travel.
