Snow expected in Columbia, advisory issued
The National Weather Service has revised its winter weather advisories to include Richland and Lexington counties, until 10 p.m. Forecasts call for snow to begin to fall around 2 p.m. and it could be more than an inch, locally.
The winter weather advisory is in effect for Aiken, Kershaw, and Fairfield Counties, too. A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties, and you should be prepared for snow covered roads, limited visibility. Use caution while driving.
Also, a winter storm warning is in effect for Calhoun, Lee, Orangeburg, Clarendon Bamberg, and Sumter Counties through 10 a.m. A Winter Storm Warning means significant amounts of snow, sleet and ice are expected, which will make travel very hazardous or impossible.
