Little accumulation is expected, but roads could be slick as rain turns to sleet overnight

CHARLESTON — The National Weather Service office in Charleston issued a Winter Weather Advisory on Monday as colder temperatures are expected to arrive overnight, resulting in sleet, ice and rain.

“Mixed precipitation expected,” reads the advisory, which runs from 9 p.m. Monday through noon on Tuesday. “Total snow and sleet accumulations of up to two inches and ice accumulations of a light glaze.”

After mild conditions Monday, colder air will move into the region, dropping temperatures below freezing.

“Colder air will filter into the region tonight and a wintry mix will develop late tonight into Tuesday morning,” the NWS said. “While snow and ice amounts will be light, slick road conditions are possible during the peak travel time on Tuesday morning. Those traveling Tuesday morning should keep up to date on the latest forecasts and road conditions.”

The high temperature on Tuesday and Wednesday is forecast to be around 35 degrees, dropping into the mid-20s overnight. Once the current precipitation moves out Wednesday, the remainder of the week is expected to be cool but clear or cloudy.
