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.
