**** WINTER STORM WARNING IN EFFECT UNTIL 6AM SATURDAY ****
Rain continues to change over to snow this evening as temperatures fall towards the freezing mark. Snow will continue overnight across just about the entire area with accumulations likely by morning. Along the coast we are looking for 1-2" all the way to the beaches. Further inland most areas should be able to pick up 2-4". An area of heavier snow along the I-95 corridor through Hampton, Colleton, Dorchester and Berkeley counties could get 4-6" or even more before the storm moves out early tomorrow morning. Significant travel issues may develop on roads and bridges as the night progresses. Stay tuned as we refine the forecast and check the "Weather Blog" for more on what may be on our way!
