BEAUFORT, S.C. — Forecasters say there is a slight chance of freezing rain or drizzle across the coast of South Carolina.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory from Beaufort to Myrtle Beach and as far inland as Florence for late Sunday into Monday morning.

Forecasters say temperatures could dip below freezing leading to a few hundredths of an inch of ice accumulating on roads, bridges, trees and power lines. There is a 20 percent chance of precipitation.

That’s enough ice to leave slick spots, especially on the dozens of coastal bridges.

It also will be brutally cold. Will chill advisories have been issued around Charleston, where lows in the mid-20s and strong winds will make it feel closer to 10 degrees.
