As snow showers moved out of the western Carolinas, colder temperatures moved in on Sunday.
Following an afternoon full of fun in the snow for many across the Upstate and western North Carolina, FOX Carolina Meteorologist Andy Wood said higher elevations across the western North Carolina mountains would see additional snow Saturday night and early Sunday morning.
However, areas across the Upstate that saw a decent amount of snow may be faced with some ice Sunday morning, Wood said.
While the snow ceased by about 6 p.m. in the Upstate, temperatures took a nose dive late Saturday night, Wood said. He said temperatures would dip into the 20s across northeast Georgia and the Upstate and into the teens in western North Carolina, increasing the chance for icy roads early Sunday.
Most Upstate areas saw light snow accumulation on Saturday. Wood said there were widespread reports of 2" to 3" in Spartanburg and Cherokee counties. The National Weather Service extended a winter weather advisory for several Upstate counties and much of western North Carolina until noon on Sunday.
FOX Carolina Chief Meteorologist Kendra Kent said that after the snow comes a very cold weekend. High temperatures only climbed into the 40s for the Upstate on Sunday and 30s for the mountains.
Sunday saw sun, melting whatever ice was left on the roads. Wood said it should all melt and be gone by mid-morning. Crews were out treating some Upstate roads on Saturday for Sunday drivers as the snow melts but may refreeze in some spots because of the chilly temperatures.

Sunshine and slightly warmer air return to the region by Monday, Kent said.
