Snow on the way to Boro?
If snow comes, it will fall after 10 p.m. Friday

    Those waiting around on snow to arrive Friday may have to stay up late, because the flakes aren't expected to fall until after 10 p.m. and won't be significant until after 1 a.m. Saturday — if they show up at all.
    Forecasters predict snow for late Friday night and early Saturday morning, but as of Wednesday evening, the predictions were still uncertain due to questions about what the weather systems will do.
    Savannah area meteorologist Pat Prokop stated on his Facebook page that there is "a decent chance that some snow will fall over south Georgia and extreme southeastern South Carolina" Friday evening and night.
    National Weather Service meteorologist Pete Mohlin agreed, but warned there will likely be little or no accumulation.
    He did say, however, the snowfall could be "more than flurries." And, he added, weather conditions between now and Friday could change to where the snowfall is more than expected — or not at all.
    If the storm system in the Gulf of Mexico moves more northward, temperatures may be too warm for snow. But as it stood Wednesday, forecasts are for 30 percent chance of snow Friday, moving into a 40 percent chance Friday evening/Saturday morning.
    The National Weather Service Web site ( stated any precipitation in the Statesboro area Friday will likely be rainfall before 10 p.m., moving into a mix of rain, sleet and snow between 10 p.m. Friday and 1 a.m. Saturday, and snow after 1 a.m.
    Overall, the precipitation is not expected to be heavy, Mohlin said — about a quarter of an inch total.
