Storm Update

Clearly not going to make the 5" snow mark. But, it's not over yet. Expect snow showers to continue this evening, changing to a snow/sleet mixture, and then freezing rain/drizzle overnight - additional accumulations highly dependent upon exactly where the showers pass. See radar shot below (moisture moving NE).

Greenville Radar at 6:51pm EST


No major ice but enough to make everything slick. Temperatures won't rise above freezing until tomorrow around noon or later, so unless roads are treated, expect them to remain slick and snow/sleet covered. Here are the latest reports from around the area, courtesy of the NWS. Rowan has generally received 2-3" from what I've seen. Please leave a comment on how much snowfall you have received and where.
