COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — The latest round of winter weather in South Carolina is causing delays for state government.

The snow around Columbia and in the northern part of the state Wednesday promoted Gov. Henry McMaster to postpone his State of the State address until next Wednesday (Jan. 24).

Also the House and Senate both ended their second week at the Statehouse in 2018 early, cancelling their Wednesday and Thursday sessions because of the wintery weather. Most committee meetings were called off too.

A fast moving system brought up to 4 inches (10 centimeters) of snow to places along and north of Interstate 85 on Wednesday as well as to areas around Rock Hill and at least a dusting to most of the rest of northern South Carolina, according to the National Weather Service.

Some roads did ice over quickly and kept troopers and police busy with dozens of wrecks. But no deaths were reported, along with only a handful of power outages.

Wednesday's snow came exactly two weeks after a storm brought more than 5 inches (13 centimeters) of snow to Charleston, blanketing coastal areas that can sometimes go a decade without measurable snow.

Troopers warn any water left on the roads when the sun goes down will quickly turn to ice as lows are forecast to be well below freezing Thursday morning.

But the thaw is coming fast. The Weather Service said highs over the weekend should be in the 60s.
