Last night (or really, really early this morning) I wrote there was no chance of snow, blah blah blah. And then, I find this Special Weather Statement in my inbox.
… Frozen precipitation will mix with rain at times this
Frozen precipitation… in the form of sleet and snow… will
occasionally mix with rain at times through the mid morning hours.
The sleet and snow will occur during times of heavier
precipitation. The frozen precipitation will not accumulate… but
rainfall and strong winds may result in hazardous driving conditions
this morning. Motorists… especially those in high profile
vehicles… should use caution when traveling across bridges due
to the high winds.
Tune to NOAA Weather Radio all hazards or visit the National
Weather Service in Charleston on the internet at weather.Gov/chs
for the latest forecasts and statements.
It’s not “fun” snow, though. It’s snow and sleet mixed with — you guessed it — crappy, terrible cold rain. Talk about a commuter nightmare this morning…and I get to walk in this crap in about 20 minutes…
