On Saturday, several inches of snow was observed in several states in the southern Appalachians region. Snow accumulated in the Louisville, Kentucky area and as far south as north Georgia and upstate South Carolina.
Impacts of the snow should be minimal. However, a brief snow squall or two may reduce visibility from time to time. Another concern may be wet roadways freezing during the overnight hours as temperatures drop off. Some patches of black ice will be possible.
