Freezing rain threatens northern South Carolina

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Freezing rain is possible in parts of northern South Carolina, prompting some school districts to delay the start of classes.

The National Weather Service on Wednesday morning canceled a freezing rain advisory for Chesterfield and Lancaster counties. The advisory was still in effect in Chester and York counties until late Wednesday morning. Forecasters said a trace of ice was possible in the area, which could make it dangerous for drivers.

No freezing rain was reported early Wednesday.

Some schools in the area delayed the start of classes by two hours Wednesday morning.

Electric utilities reported few problems Wednesday morning. Duke Energy said about 400 customers were without service in Sumter County.
