The snow and rain will begin lifting east of the area by Noon, ending likely as a light rain as temperatures near the surface increase.
Primary roads across a good chunk of the Upstate should be okay to travel on, just use common sense and safe-driving techniques. Exercise more caution on secondary roads, particularly north of I-85.
We have seen huge snow totals in western North Carolina. Asheville has seen around 7" so far, with Maggie Valley receiving a foot of snowfall! Less has fallen in the Upstate, but nearly 2 inches came down for Greenville and Greer, while Travelers Rest saw 3 inches.
More snow comes in for the mountains Saturday night along the TN border, where an additional 1-3” of snow is possible.
Toward Sunday morning, there will be potential for isolated slick spots on elevated surfaces across the entire area as temperatures plunge into the teens and 20s.
