Chances grow for Thursday snow

More snow could be on the way. But, snowmen will be unlikely.

A winter weather advisory for snow has been issued from 2 a.m.  to 9 a.m. Thursday for counties  north of the Augusta area.

 Meteorologists are predicting a 50 percent chance of rain that could gradually turn to snow, according to Jeff Linton, of the National Weather Service in West Columbia, S.C.

Pam Tucker, director of the Columbia County Emergency & Operations Division, estimated that the area will see less than a half inch of accumulation. Linton estimated “little to none.”

The high Thursday of around 46 degrees will gradually melt away Augusta’s chances for another snow day.
