(WLTX) - Some parts of the Midlands may see some sleet on Friday.

Presently, a cold front is moving from the central United States into the Southeast.

For late Thursday and early Friday, skies are expected to remain clear. However, a weak disturbance is expected to trigger precipitation across South Carolina.

In the Upstate, sleet and freezing rain is expected most of Friday. In the Midlands, most people will only see rain; however, as the day progresses, parts of the northern and central part of the area could see something else.

Why might that happen? By around 4 p.m., the falling rain will cool the region into the 30s. In Newbery County, Kershaw County, and Fairfield County, this could mean a freezing drizzle may form. As the area of moisture moves deeper into the area, sleet could be possible even in Columbia.

No accumlation is expected.

The precipitaiton will not last long, as it's expected to push out of the region by 11 p.m. Behind it will be dry air, meaning we won't have a chance for rain over the weekend.
