(WLTX) - Much of the remaining ice and snow that's out on the roads and sidewalks should melt away Thursday.
The Midlands was inundated with the white stuff Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Some areas saw between two and four inches of snow.
Wednesday, some of the snow melted away, but the high temperature didn't get above freezing, so not as much was able to evaporate. What did melt turned into patches of ice.
Thursday, however, the forecast high is expected to get to the low 40s. Coupled with the sunny skies, most of the snow and ice that's out there should go away.
That isn't to say you may not see a few patches of snow and ice on lawns and trees, or rooftop shingles into Friday. Not every bit will be gone, and with temperatures forecast to get down to 18 degrees, the wintry precipitation will get one last chance to freeze. However, Friday's high temperatures in the low 50s should eliminate the remaining snow.
On Saturday, we'll see highs in the upper 50s, and by Sunday, we'll have a high near 70. We'll also have a chance of a more typical type of precipitations for the South: rain.
