Greenville: Snow possible this weekend

Upstate, South Carolina could see first snow of the season this weekend

Two models tell very different stories



Oh it’s such a beautiful afternoon out there. We’ve got a lot of sunshine but it’s cold. You still need that heavy coat. Winter is still here, that’s for sure. We are going to be a little bit warmer tomorrow going from the forties today into the fifties tomorrow. And then as we get into the weekend we are looking at the possibility of snow and I will say it’s looking more and more likely although it’s just a possibility nothing is concrete as of yet. As we take a look outside high pressure very much in control. We’ve got light north winds out there. It’s pulling in some colder air which is why today is colder than yesterday. Tomorrow by the way our winds will be out of south that’ll be a little bit warmer. But take a look. We’ve got an area of ​​low pressure kind of making its way across western Canada that is going to pull down and give us a chance for snow heading into the weekend believe it or not. Not today, lots of sunshine, clear skies, freezing conditions overnight tomorrow will be partly cloudy and about the same on thursday we’ll get a little clipper of a system here thats going to kind of roll through late thursday and friday. But for most of us we stay dry. No big deal all eyes are on saturday in this area of ​​low pressure. We’ve got a couple of scenarios here. One is that this low pressure area goes to the north. If it does choose that path then we’re going to see maybe some light snow for the mountains, but really nothing for the upstate other than some light rainfall. If this does travel to the south then that’s when we could see possibly some snow fall across the mountains and the upstate. The timing on this is gonna be saturday afternoon. That’s the way it looks right now. If it just starts in the afternoon, it’s gonna start as rain at no matter where we are in the mountains of the upstate because our temperatures will be too warm. But as temperatures start dropping 78 o’clock at night across the mountains, shortly there after across the upstate and this is still churning out moisture tapping into the gulf and kind of flinging it across our area, then we could see some light measurable snowfall across the upstate and the mountains as well, possibly into the very early morning hours of sunday. The european model is showing this four o’clock saturday. Again, not a lot of snowfall, this would be for higher elevations where it’s colder. In lower elevations, it would just be raining. But as the evening goes on, if that moisture still intact, then we could see some light measurable snow, anything from a dusting or a couple flurries upwards of half an inch, maybe an inch or so, some weather models trending maybe we get a little bit more than that. But again, it’s all gonna depend on the timing and track of that low. So at this time, that chance is looking more probable, but it is still just a chance. So we will continue to track that low stock it really, watching every single move it makes and we will keep you updated. In the meantime, it’s all about the sunshine today and colder air. 40s for daytime highs were back in the 50s tomorrow, Thursday, even Friday across the upstate. Not too bad in the mountains either, but Saturday rain possibly rain to snow.

So you’re saying there’s a chance? Yes, there is a chance of snow this weekend. But nothing is set in stone. (Watch the full forecast below) There are two weather models trending toward snow in the mountains and Upstate on Saturday. One model brings a lot of snow to the Upstate. Another brings a dusting to an inch. But it’s all tricky at this time and everything depends on the track of the low system and the timing. Chief Meteorologist Chris Justus breaks down the differences in the models below: And in case you missed it, Chris introduced us to baby Olivia on Monday. Watch the video below:
