  • Good afternoon,
  • Our forecast remains on track with no major changes to the previous forecast.
  • Tonight, rain will begin mixing in with snow for areas along and west of Hwy 17, mainly after 10pm. A few locations could see a brief changeover to all snow. Due to warm ground temperatures and short duration, little to no impacts are expected. Total amounts of less than a half of an inch are possible with accumulations mainly limited to grassy surfaces.
  • Coastal Flood Advisories remain in effect for locations shaded in orange on the attached graphic. Minor soundside coastal flooding up to 1 foot is possible.
  • This is our final 1 page briefing for this event with no subsequent updates expected.
  • Best regards,
