Are you ready for some … snow?

Forecasters are calling for 2 to 4 inches, with some areas getting more, for Friday evening.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch to include Effingham County, saying a significant winter storm is expected to impact parts of the area Friday afternoon and night.

A low pressure system will intensify over the Gulf of Mexico through Friday morning, the Charleston office of the National Weather Service advised, before its crosses over the Florida peninsula and into the Atlantic Ocean tonight. As colder air from the north seeps into the area, the precipitation is expected to change from rain and a rain/snow mix into snow late Friday afternoon.

Snowfall is expected to be moderate to heavy at times and will persist through the evening before tapering off after midnight, according to the National Weather Service.

A winter storm watch means there is potential for significant snow, sleet or ice accumulation that could affect travel.

Effingham County schools are not in session today because of a scheduled planning day.
