Columbia, SC (WLTX) - The Midlands got to experience a little bit of snow Tuesday night.
From Winnsboro to Lugoff-Elgin to Hopkins, all reported a light dusting of snow on the ground. Richland County saw a mix of snow and rain.
News19 Chief Meteorologist Jim Gandy says cold air from a front moving through the area and moisture interacted, producing the wintry precipitation.
Gandy says there's little chance that any of the precipitation will stick on the ground. He also says that the high winds should prevent any ice accumulation on roads and bridges.
No school or business closings have been reported.
SCEG reported that almost 700 people in Richland County are without power, some of this is due to the high winds knocking down power lines and in Lexington County a little over 600 are without power.
The National Weather Service in Columbia tweeted that based on climate records, the chance of measurable snowfall at the Columbia airport in November is 0.016 percent.
