GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Snow flurries were spotted across parts of the Upstate on Saturday as a small, fast-moving front swept across the western Carolinas.

FOX Carolina Meteorologist Andy Wood said a moisture-packed, northern clipper system moved into the mountain region Saturday afternoon. The system was forecast to bring 3" to 4" of accumulation across a lot of western North Carolina, with 1" to 2" likely in valley towns.

A few snow flurries and light rain fell across the Upstate, northeast Georgia and southwestern North Carolina, Wood said. Upstate temperatures were expected to stay in the high 30s and low 40s until late Saturday night, with digits dropping to a low of 32 Sunday morning.
