little bit of rain across the midlands. you can see the showers starting to move into portions of the midlands. all of this is rain across the area. if you look just past the north carolina or south carolina's border up towards north carolina, you can see a little bit of snow up there. they are getting some snow up there for us here across it is the midlands. it's just been rain so far. we'll put our forecast into motion for you, show you what we expect for the next 36 hours or so. the rain continues to build in tonight and by tomorrow morning around daybreak or so, enough cold air may spill into the northern midlands. we'll see a little bit of freezing rain so that's what we're going to be watching. keep in mind that freezing rain advisory does begin at 1:00 and does last until 12:00. this particular forecast model tries to bring that freezing precipitation a little further south. that's something we'll be watching but right now, this is just one of the forecast models that kind of brings that precipitation a little bit further south. as we go through the afternoon hours though, a little bit warmer air kind of streams in. it becomes all rain, still have
the area and as this rain kind of wraps on up late friday evening, a little bit more moisture kind of swings on through and that's when we may see a little bit ofidx5n5>'h late friday night, early portions of saturday, and it looks like that may move on out by the time we got to the afternoon hours. we're still left with mostly cloudy skies. as far as the forecast is concerned, we have that freezing rain advisory for the northern midlands, anywhere from a tenth to quarter of an inch of rain, or freezing rain up there. we educational background get a little bit of freezing rain here in the central midlands at least in this forecast model is indicating that. right now we don't think they'll be any problems but this is something we'll be watching closely. if you're getting ready for any kind of snow, if you made me make a forecast this is what i think we'd see snow on saturday, maybe a dusting in the northern midlands, and just case amounts so maybe just something to look at -- trace amounts, but not expecting any kind of accumulation. lows dropping into the
we're expecting highs to not warm up a whole lot, maybe mid-to-upper 30s. it's not going to warm up a whole lot. keep in mind we have the freezing rain in the northern midlands, kind of tapering off tomorrow night and early saturday morning may end with a little bit of wintry mix, maybe some sleet and snow. it's all history by sunday. 53 degrees, 59 degrees by monday and another system will approach the area by tuesday and wednesday. 62 degrees by tuesday. but again this is a storm system we'll be watching very closely. small changes in the track or intensity could change what we see whether it be ice in the northern or central midlands. >> 100% chance of rain. not something we see a lot. i haven't seen that graphic a lot. >> it's going to rain.

football coach's association. you haveton when it's your to know when it's your time to step aside. >> we all have an expiration date as coaches and players, whatever. at the coach's convention i just mentioned that maybe mine was last year after the 14th season, but we thought we had a good season is this year. it didn't work out, and for whatever reason, i thought it would be best for me to step aside. >> reporter: you at peace with your decision to walk away? >> definitely, reggie, definitely. i've had my run. i'm glad i got in when i did, out when i did. maybe i should have got out a little bit sooner. but any way, i've had a wonderfullun. god's been good to me and my family, and i'm pulling for the gamecocks, coach tanner, present past td's, they've got me doing a little sort of good will work for the gamecocks and i hope to do that for a long time. >> all right.
specifically, the second ranked usc women on the road tonight taking on auburn. they've been tested of late, passing every test. gamecocks off and rung. check out the nice pass to asia wilson, with the bucket and-one. knowing when to make that extra pass, and white on the ensuing free throw miss. there's asia, gotta block her out. leading score tonight with the gamecocks was elaine a coach, and ten rebounds to lead usc to a 74-58 win over the auburn tigers. how about a little ladies action tonight, the benedict lady tigers moved up to 15th in this usa today sports division two poll. lady tigers against fort valley state, terry jacobs scoring

we could see a little bit of freezing rain here in the central midlands. right now we don't think it's going to be a big deal. we'll be watching very closely anywhere from a quarter to maybe a 1/10th of an inch. by the time that rain winds on down late friday night, early saturday morning we could see a couple snowflakes. again we don't think that's going to be necessarily major deal. the biggest thing by far is the freezing rain in the northern midlands. >> it's possible to go to work with no freezing rain and be
