Watch out: Ice could linger until early afternoon

·1 min read

The Augusta area got a glimpse of a snow and freezing rain Friday night. Forecasters with the National Weather Service said it recorded three-tenths of an inch of rain and freezing rain as well as three-tenths of an inch of snow.

While the snow still lingers on the ground, so does some danger – the National Weather Service said some roads in Columbia, Richmond, Aiken, Burke, Edgefield, Lincoln, McDuffie and McCormick will remain slick after the snow and rainfall. With temperatures not above freezing until late morning or early afternoon, drivers should remain alert for slick roads with patchy ice and use caution while traveling or delay travel until later this afternoon.

Snow still lingered on the bridge over the canal at Savannah Rapids on Saturday, January 22, 2022.
