Snow day?

Snow day?

Extreme weather (in the form of rain) knocked the final night of the 2012 Carolina Challenge cup off the calendar last February. Tonight’s forecast isn’t nearly that bad, but it’s probably just as weird.

…A LITTLE SNOW WILL IMPACT THE CHARLESTON TRI-COUNTY AREA TONIGHT…

LOW PRESSURE OFF THE MID ATLANTIC COAST WILL INTENSIFY THIS EVENING… AND MOISTURE WRAPPING AROUND THIS SYSTEM WILL EXTEND AS FAR SOUTHWEST AS THE CHARLESTON TRI-COUNTY AREA OF SOUTH CAROLINA. MUCH COLDER AIR IN WAKE OF A STRONG ARCTIC COLD FRONT THAT PASSES THROUGH THE REGION THIS AFTERNOON WILL SURGE INTO THE AREA ON GUSTY NORTHWEST WINDS. AS TEMPERATURES FALL INTO THE 30S SOME OF THE RAIN WILL MIX WITH AND EVENTUALLY CHANGE OVER TO ALL SNOW BEFORE ENDING.

THE SNOW WILL BEGIN MIXING WITH THE RAIN ACROSS THE AREA BETWEEN 7 AND 10 PM… CHANGING OVER TO ALL SNOW IN PARTS OF BERKELEY AND NORTHERN CHARLESTON COUNTIES BY 10 PM TO MIDNIGHT… THEN ENDING IN ALL AREAS BY 12 TO 1 AM.

LITTLE TO NO SNOW ACCUMULATION IS ANTICIPATED… ALTHOUGH IF A STEADIER BAND OF SNOW DEVELOPS OFF LAKE MOULTRIE OR LASTS LONGER THAN CURRENTLY ANTICIPATED… THEN A SMALL ACCUMULATION OF SNOW WOULD BE POSSIBLE IN PARTS OF BERKELEY COUNTY. AREA ROADWAYS WILL BE MAINLY WET… BUT AS TEMPERATURES DROP TO NEAR FREEZING AROUND MIDNIGHT… A FEW BRIDGES AND OVERPASSES IN BERKELEY COUNTY MIGHT BECOME A LITTLE SLIPPERY. PLEASE DRIVE WITH EXTREME CARE

Here’s how I’m looking at it: This will be one of the rare Charleston home matches when you’ll actually ENJOY the warmth provided by your Battery scarf. Bring it on!
