Snowfall north of the I-85 corridor will generally be 1 to 1.5 inches. Areas along and south of the I-85 corridor may see 1.5 to 2 inches of snow with locally higher depending on exactly where the heavier band sets up north of Though snowfall totals are forecast to remain less than 2 inches, impacts to travel could be significant due to temperatures falling into the teens and 20s this afternoon and evening. ...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 AM CST WEDNESDAY... ...WIND CHILL ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 9 PM THIS EVENING TO 9 AM CST WEDNESDAY...
