Stop dreaming of a white Christmas and come back to reality.
South Carolina REALLY could get snowfall on Christmas.
Just dont count on playing in the white stuff in the Midlands. "Itll be scratchy sledding if youre not in the Upstate," said Mark Malsick, severe weather meteorologist with the state climate office.
