As many of you local bloggers from the Charleston area know, we are expecting snow later tonight and tomorrow morning. Reports have already come in from Moncks Corner indicating it has been snowing lightly there since 5 pm. Tonight's forecast calls for lows in the upper 20's, north winds of 15-20 mph, and a near 100 percent chance of the fluffy stuff, on the order of 4-6 inches. Those conditions put the area under a winter storm warning. I'm skeptical of getting that much snow here, 2-3 inches seems like a better bet. Either way, if I'm correct, it would be the first time in 20 years that the Charleston area has received accumulated snow fall. I'm excited for it, as I've never seen snow! (embarrassing, huh?) Currently it is 34.5 F, with light rain. Snowfall should begin around 9 pm. I'll post photos if it does infact snow.

Update: Now 34 F, and starting to sleet...
Well, the storm on February 12th lived up to the billing! 8 and a half hours of moderate snow fall, accumulating to 4.5 inches fell in Goose Creek at the NWS.
