Snow possible for some in western Carolinas Tuesday - FOX Carolina 21

Snow, rain and freezing temperatures arrive Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

A new weather system is developing over Florida and will move up the coastline Tuesday, which will bring the next chance for wet weather.

That system is expected to bring on and off (cold) rain with a possibility for a few snowflakes mixing in for the Upstate. The best chance of seeing a rain/snow mix will be in the higher elevations for the Upstate.  The mountains will see snow early, with rain/snow mix in Tuesday afternoon.

Drivers should use caution Tuesday as mountain towns could see some light accumulation of about an inch, with isolated high elevations seeing up to 3 inches. Because ground temperatures will be above freezing, the accumulation numbers on the ground will be less.

Late Tuesday skies will clear, but that will help drop temperatures into the 20s for everyone. By Wednesday morning, any lingering moisture will re-freeze, so isolated slick spots will be possible across the Upstate, and the mountains will likely see ice on the roads. A Freeze Watch has been issued for the Upstate, northeast Georgia and piedmont of North Carolina for Tuesday night, as temperatures will dip below freezing and the growing season has begun.

On Wednesday, sunshine returns with highs staying cool in the 40s and 50s. Warmer temperatures in the 60s will return by the end of the week.
