Forecasters said less than 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) of snow was expected in central South Carolina. That forecast ranged up to 6 inches (15centimeters) of snow in the Rock Hill area. Lesser amounts were expected in the northwestern and northeastern parts of the state.

McMaster's first State of the State address scheduled for Wednesday evening was rescheduled for Jan. 24.

The South Carolina Senate also canceled its Wednesday meeting. Many schools and government offices were closed or delayed in western and central South Carolina.
