Area seeing snow flurries, morning will bring chill temps, 'biting wind'

Lowcountry residents are currently seeing snow flurries, according to the National Weather Service and numerous social media posts.

Jonathan Lamb, a meteorologist with the Charleston post, said the flurries are very light and dissipating.

"The winds are picking up and the temperatures are falling quickly," he added.

He said there were numerous reports of snow all over the Lowcountry, in Berkeley, Dorchester and Charleston counties.

Lamb reported that the temperature was about 40 degrees at about 10:30 p.m. in North Charleston, but would quickly fall to the 30s. He said residents could expect temperatures to be in the teens in the morning with a "biting wind," - a rarity in the area.

"It's going to catch people off guard," he said of Thursday's weather.
