Upstate Almost Winter Weather

Dear Winter,
This is an email I received today from WEATHERALERT.  As I said in my previous note to you, YOU SUCK!

Thanks and have a Great Day,
Keala M Jacobs

Good Morning,

A developing surface low pressure in the central GoMex will turn on the faucet for a lengthy rainfall event starting… er, now. For most of the State this means rain, at times heavy (two-by-two rain…), tonight and all day Friday. Rain clears out before lunch Saturday.  The Upstate Quixotic wrinkle in this forecast is that from the northern Midlands and Upstate, expect periods of sleet and freezing rain Friday morning and again Friday night. Morning low temperatures will be 32 degrees along the I-85 corridor. Change over to plain rain Friday will be quick after 8 AM. Do not see any significant accumulation. Sledding: Poor.
