COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) –

A new Winter Weather Advisory has been expanded to include more areas in the Midlands.

The advisory was initially issued for Kershaw, Fairfield, and Lee counties and it now includes Lexington, Newberry, Richland, Saluda and Sumter. It will last until noon on Sunday. First Alert Meteorologist Von Gaskin expects a dusting or light accumulation on elevated and grassy areas in those counties.

“It’s not going to accumulate on roads,” Meteorologist Von Gaskin said. “No road impacts are expected.”

Rainfall has also begun changing into snow in parts of Lexington, Newberry, and Richland counties. A good portion of the Midlands can expect to see some sort of freezing precipitation until around noon on Sunday. Don’t expect any of that to stick or accumulate unless you live in the northern Midlands.

“It’s not going to be an all day event,” Gaskin said.

A cold front brought cooler temperatures into South Carolina this weekend. Daytime high temperatures could be 20 degrees cooler than the average for this time of year, which is 65°.

For all of the Midlands, it’s going to be a raw, ugly day. The daytime high Sunday is expected to be in the middle 40’s. Rain and wind will be adding to the chill of the day on Sunday.

“It’s a good day to stay in and cuddle up,” Gaskin said.

Sunday night is expected to be cloudy with temperatures dropping into the middle 30’s. Monday will bring a continuation of the cold and raw weather as temperatures will stay in the middle 40’s. Skies will be mostly cloudy with a chance of afternoon showers that will continue into the night and also into Tuesday morning.
