MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The Spring season technically begins on Tuesday morning, but another blast of cold air and a small chance for snow flurries is possible by Wednesday.

Temperatures climb into the 70s Tuesday afternoon with a risk of isolated strong to severe storms, followed by a drastic drop in temperatures overnight and into Wednesday.  Wednesday's temperatures will only reach the 40s with cloudy skies, a gusty wind and a few light showers and areas of drizzle.

There is a chance of lingering light rain through late Wednesday. As the temperature drops in the late afternoon and evening, there is a narrow window where the remaining moisture could fall as a mix of rain and light snow flurries.

The best chances of a few wet snowflakes mixed with rain will exist near the North Carolina border.  With temperatures above freezing and warm ground temperatures, no accumulations or road issues are expected.
