A bunch of cold frigid air combined with a low pressure system off the Florida coast is bringing some pretty nasty weather to Florida, South Georgia and coastal SC today.
Low pressure is quickly wrapping up off the Florida coast in response to a very energetic shortwave trough. This will continue to drive significant winter weather for #CHS through tonight. pic.twitter.com/kuWui7zGao

The rain and sleet started at the house around mid-morning, and it didn’t take long for visible ice accumulation to start showing up on the roofs and on the ground.
By about 11AM or so, the ice pellets coming down had turned into a mix of snow and ice.
By noon, it became a pretty good snowfall.

2PM Snow. Can’t see the grass in the yard anymore.
Forecast is calling for more snow through the evening. Should look pretty interesting tomorrow morning. It’ll be just like home.
