As much as 2 inches of snow could fall in Rock Hill and surrounding areas by Saturday morning in what would be the third straight weekend winter weather event affecting travel, officials said.
The snow is expected to be followed Saturday into Sunday with bitter cold temperatures that could drop into the teens by Sunday morning, officials said.
The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory through 9 a.m. Saturday for all three counties that shows up to 2 inches of snow. The advisory said drivers should plan for slippery road conditions after rain late Friday turns to snow overnight into Saturday morning.
Be prepared for snow-covered roads and limited visibility, NWS said.
Many main roads have been pre-treated with brine by the S.C. Department of Transportation, Lancaster County Emergency Management Director Darren Player said in a statement.
The low temperature into Saturday morning is forecast for around 25 degrees.
The forecast for later Saturday after the snow stops shows temperatures reaching the mid 30s. The low Saturday night into Sunday morning is forecast in the teens for all three counties.
York, Chester and Lancaster counties had ice and snow the last two weekends in previous storms.
