MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — The National Weather Service is forecasting an end to winter accumulation early Thursday morning in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, resulting in a total accumulation of between one and three inches.

Myrtle Beach, a top tourist spot for West Virginians, experienced a mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow Wednesday.

“Anything that falls that hasn’t been frozen will be frozen,” meterologist Doug Hoehler said.

Hoehler said residents living away from the coast are more likely to see snow, adding it is not too rare for snow to fall on the beaches of the Palmetto State.

“We get one of these per year or every other year,” he said. “It’s just that this doesn’t occur that often.”

Temperatures are expected to stay in the 30s through the rest of the week. Sunday’s high is predicted to be 44 degrees, and Monday’s high temperature is listed as “near 59.”
