CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Live 5 Chief Meteorologist Bill Walsh said a slight chance of a dusting of snow is possible for portions of the Lowcountry on Wednesday, but no accumulation is expected for areas along the coast.

According to Walsh, the areas that could see a dusting include portions of St. George, Walterboro, Moncks Corner, Kingstree and Manning.

But with temperatures well above the freezing mark, the precipitation won't stick around very long.

Walsh said an arctic cold front moving in will bring showers and the possibility of the wintry mix after lunch Wednesday.

The best chance for snow, however, is inland.

Any precipitation should taper off by sunset, he said.

The low temperature Wednesday night will be a chilly 24 degrees, but Walsh says a warmup is expected byFriday and into the weekend.
