CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

What a difference a few degrees makes.

Hopes for snow flurries in the Lowcountry seemed to have been defeated by temperatures that just didn't dip down quite far enough to form snow.

"We were just a few degrees from it being a very different story," Live 5 Meteorologist Joey Sovine said.

Snow was spotted in South Carolina, but it was mostly along the I-95 corridor toward Florence and west along I-26 toward Orangeburg and into the Midlands, Live 5 Meteorologist Sagay Galindo. As remaining precipitation moves out, areas in the northeast corner of the Lowcountry like Georgetown County are likely the only ones with a glimmer of a shot at flurries.

Motorists need to be on the alert for strong winds in addition to wet roads. A wind advisory is in effect until 7 p.m. Sunday night because of wind gusts up to 40 miles per hour.
