WINTER WEATHER UPDATE - JANUARY 6, 2017 -- NEXT FORECAST AT 4:00PM
Posted by Century 21 Thomas Blogger | Friday, January 6, 2017




  • A changeover to a mix of wintry weather is expected by daybreak Saturday for inland areas and later during Saturday morning for coastal areas.
  • The high temperature during Saturday will occur in the morning, with temperatures dropping throughout the day as the arctic air mass plunges across the Carolinas.
  • Very cold temperatures and single digit wind chill values (combination of wind and temperature) are expected Sunday morning and again during Monday morning.
  • Ice accumulations of less than 0.10 are possible across portions of our forecast area Saturday.
  • This freezing rain along with any snow/sleet accumulations farther inland may create hazardous travel conditions.  
  • The arctic air mass will begin to lose its grip on our area Tuesday into Wednesday.
  Potential Impacts
  • Hazardous driving conditions expected, especially bridges, overpasses, & elevated road surfaces beginning early Saturday morning, especially across inland areas
  • Black ice possible on area roadways Saturday night into Sunday morning as arctic air arrives in our area in force
  • Isolated power outages possible Saturday
  • Dangerously cold weather Sunday into Monday with arctic air-mass in place
