Well, the snow is here, and by the time it gets to mid-morning it will turn to freezing rain and sleet. Today we continue with winter storm warnings, resulting in snow, ice and eventually some compounds across the western hemisphere and our blizzard warning continues, we can see up to three-quarters in Alberton, Abeyville, Greenwood, Lawrence and Union. Much of the upstate is expected to be an inch of snow by the end of the day, with an expected snowfall of 1/10 to a quarter of an inch at the end of the day. Some isolated electrical problems are more likely to occur when you go into that heavy snow, some thin spots on the roads or heavy snow and high electrical barriers that weigh down the joints and poles of those trees, especially if this is sufficient. That very strong wind that we expect late today. Super Doppler Four HD Radar can be viewed live. You know it, three o’clock this morning. Now you can see it is packed. Lots of snow. It’s exciting to see that area. The most icy part is certainly not, but the driving mechanism of all of this, the low pressure area is right here for Mississippi. It will continue to plow our area for the next few hours and the wind will blow as we leave at midnight. We’re going to start to feel these kinds of cranks a little more. This morning 89 10 a.m., 40 50 60 miles. Wind blowing is possible. The good news is that it does not last all day. As we go into the afternoon, we begin to see these winds die down. It will be more breezy and sometimes windy but it will not have semi-balanced power. So this is good news. Let’s see your time. Here it is this morning 6 30. From that snow we are going to see many parts of the highlands from frost to snow and sleet. At that time we are going to get more snow pockets, but by 78 we are going to see more and more districts being affected. We’ll see more by 9 or 10 a.m. during that period. Nearly all of the highlands must have shifted from snowfall to frost and sleet. Then we start to see the snow start to accumulate. So 10 11 12 an hour or two is a lot of time for us to take in some of that snow and sleet, that snow. It’s still four or five, maybe six hours, and then today’s 34 hours, we’ll start to see that change in the snow again, and put the Wanna Hola Pickens Clemson back in the heart. In the southern parts of Anderson, you can see the snow. I initially saw a little snow, and then 56 hours before Greenville County you see us landing in dry air. I mean, it’s going to be Russian very quickly, and it’s going to reduce snowfall very quickly, so we’ll not watch it all night. In the mountains it will continue for some more time. So based on our projected snowfall total, I did not change this much. Some of us will be a little less than you see. Some may be a little more. This is a good prediction of what we have been seeing here for the past few days. It would be cool, it would be embarrassing. It would be a great day to be indoors, for sure. Today the maximum is around 30 and the air in the 20s will be cooler, especially tomorrow it will be sunny day, it will be nice and we will get above freezing, but it will take some time. Black snow on area roads is the primary concern for Monday and Tuesday mornings in the mountains. You are going to get a ton of snow that will freeze on some roads. It costs a few thin points. So be extra careful. Later in the week, you can see some more snowfall in the mountains and some more in the highlands. We will talk about that in detail later. Hmmm.
