Wintry showers are possible overnight - WTOC-TV: Savannah, Beaufort, SC, News, Weather & Sports

A wintry mix is possible across portions of the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry Sunday morning


For the second time in a matter of weeks, portions of the Coastal Empire and South Carolina Lowcountry may see a mix and rain and snow.

Scattered showers will increase in coverage and become widespread by mid-Saturday evening. Steady light – to occasionally moderate – rain is likely through early Sunday morning. Rain will be most persistent along the I-95 corridor between Brunswick, Georgia, and Hardeeville, South Carolina.

As cold air continues to filter towards the coast, rain may mix with or change-over to, light snow. Savannah’s greatest chance of a wintry mix will occur between 3 and 8 a.m. Sunday. The area stretching from Sylvania, Georgia,  to Charleston, South Carolina, may see a few snowflakes prior to this time.

Regardless of whether flakes fly, or not, hazardous road conditions are not expected across coastal Georgia and South Carolina because the temperature will remain above freezing throughout the event. It is possible that a slushy one-half inch of snow may accumulate on grass and other elevated surfaces in Screven County Georgia and Hampton County South Carolina.

No winter weather watches, warnings or advisories have been posted for the WTOC Viewing Area.

Our latest storm system will pull away from the coast rather quickly. Sunshine and temperatures in the 40s and 50s are likely Sunday afternoon.
