Greer and the Upstate may see snow this weekend, according to meteorologists tracking a low pressure system moving through the southeast on Friday and Saturday.

Still days away, meteologists are forecasting a cold air front, moving into the area from the north, that will produce temperatures below freezing Friday night and in the 20s on Saturday night.

The National Weather Service at Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport is calling for 70 percent chance of snow on Saturday with a high of 37 and low of 20 degrees.

Upstate residents, north of I-85, may see snow depending how fast the low pressure system moves into the area and how much moisture it will bring.

Snow accumulations could range from one to three inches in the upstate and up to four inches in the mountains.

The track and timing of the storm will be better known later Thursday.
