Following a slightly snowy day for some in the Upstate and heavier snowfall in the mountains, chilly temperatures will remain along with a bright, sunny Sunday, according to forecasters.
Temperatures are forecast to reach the middle to upper 40s, with sunshine and warmer conditions on Sunday a day after parts of the western Upstate saw a dusting of snow Saturday morning. Scattered snow showers spread eastward through the morning, then slowly wrapped up through Saturday afternoon.
FOX Carolina viewers sent in several photos of snowfall in towns like Seneca and Gray Court throughout morning and early afternoon.
In the Upstate, FOX Carolina Chief Meteorologist Kendra Kent said from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, snow showers were more likely, producing a dusting of snow in some Upstate locations. Kent said some light rain will mix with the snow before ending.
A winter weather advisory for the counties along the North Carolina - Tennessee border until 6 p.m. Saturday. The same advisory for Pickens, Oconee, Franklin and Stephen counties was canceled. Kent said 2 to 4 inches of snow was possible in the mountains, with the heaviest snow coming about midnight.
The precipitation ended for most of the area by 6 p.m. Saturday, and temperatures were forecast to quickly drop into the 20s area-wide Saturday night.
Forecasters said Monday will also see sunshine and warmer conditions as another chance for rain and possibly snow was forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday.
