Scattered sleet and snow flurries were reported across the Augusta area Sunday, but all that stuck were wind and cold temperatures.
Flurries were reported from Christmas in Hopelands in Aiken and on Evans to Locks Road in Martinez, but there appeared to be little accumulation.
"With very little precip left to fall, the strong winds will dry off the roads for the most part," said Pamela Tucker, the director of the Columbia County Emergency & Operations Division.
A wind advisory remains in effect today and will last until 7 a.m. Tuesday, she said. Winds will be westerly from 20 to 25 mph and gusts up to 35 mph.
The National Weather Service forecast a low today of 23 degrees and an overnight low Tuesday in the teens, meteorologist Shawn Smith said.
The wind-chill effect makes the temperatures feel much colder.
With winds up to 30 mph Tuesday, the temperature might feel like it's below zero, Smith said.
"Motorists need to leave early and drive carefully for their Monday morning commute in case there are icy patches remaining on some roadways," Tucker said.
