The Lowcountry may see a slight chance of snow this weekend, the National Weather Service reports.

The likelihood of snow isn’t great,“but there is a chance, which is somewhat unusual for this area,” Mohlin said.

Today, patchy fog is expected in the morning with sunny skies in the afternoon, the Weather Service reports.
