First round arrives early Tuesday


The first round of winter weather arrived early Tuesday morning bringing a steady light snow expected to accumulate between one and two inches. Schools were closed and traffic was light around the area, with wet roads and little accumulation on them. Emergency Prepardness officials were advising motorists to stay off roads unless absolutely necessary, especially as the second round of snow and ice arrives across the upstate later Tuesday. SCDOT and County trucks have sanded and brined many roads and bridges in the area.
