Latest on potential for wintry weather in South Carolina this weekend

The weather late Saturday and Sunday will have to be monitored.

COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina and the Midlands have a possibility of some wintry weather, although it's still a little too early to say definitively what, if any, effects we'll see here in the Midlands. 

As for the next day or two we'll start Thursday in the lower 30s and we'll get into the upper 50s during the day.

The forecast models have indicated a small chance of an isolated shower late in the day Thursday, but most of the area will probably not get any rain.

High pressure will begin to build in from the northeast. This will allow some colder air to move south along the eastern seaboard. High temperatures will be in the middle 50s Friday, but it will be cooler Saturday.
