AND CAROL STARTS RIGHT NOW LIVE LOCAL BREAKING NEWS. THIS IS WYFF NEWS FOUR AT SIX. NOT AS COLD TONIGHT, BUT RAIN MOVES IN FOLLOWED BY THE SECONDARY COLD BLAST. I’LL MAP OUT HOW LOW WE GO THIS TIME AND TAKE A LOOK AT SOME LIVE SUPER DOPPLER FOUR ALERT DAYS. TWO WOMEN KILLED, A HOUSE SET ON FIRE ENDS WITH AN OFFICER INVOLVED SHOOTING. HOW IT’S ALL CONNECTED, AND WHY TWO UPSTATE SHERIFFS ARE CALLING ON LAWMAKERS TONIGHT. A POPULAR SHOPPING DESTINATION IN THE UPSTATE MAY BE GETTING ANNEXED, BUT SOME LOCAL FIRE OFFICIALS SAY THIS IS NOT A GOOD IDEA. SEVERAL BIG STORIES WE ARE CONTINUING TO FOLLOW TONIGHT. FIRST, ANOTHER TEMPERATURE SWING IS AHEAD AND THIS ONE WILL BRING FRIGID FREEZES AND GUSTY WINDS TO THE CAROLINAS AND GEORGIA. ALSO, THE INVESTIGATION INTO A DOUBLE MURDER NOW INVOLVES SLED AFTER AN OFFICER INVOLVED SHOOTING WHILE SEARCHING FOR A PERSON OF INTEREST. A LIVE REPORT IN JUST A FEW MINUTES. BUT FIRST, WE START WITH THE FORECAST. A LITTLE WARMER TODAY FROM YESTERDAY, BUT TEMPERATURES ARE ABOUT TO DROP AGAIN AND THIS TIME IT’S GOING TO BE EVEN COLDER. CHIEF METEOROLOGIST CHRIS JUSTUS IS HERE. AND CHRIS, SEVERAL SUPER DOPPLER FOUR IMPACT AND ALERT DAYS AHEAD. YEAH, STARTS TOMORROW WHEN WE GET COLDER. I THINK THE DIFFERENCE WITH THIS ONE FROM EARLIER IN THE WEEK IS HOW PROLONGED IT IS. I THINK THERE WILL BE AT LEAST 48 HOURS WHERE IN GREENVILLE, NOT JUST THE MOUNTAINS THAT WERE EITHER AT OR RIGHT BELOW FREEZING. SO LET ME SHOW YOU WHAT’S HAPPENING RIGHT NOW. WE’VE GOT SOME RAIN MOVING INTO THE UPSTATE. WE’VE GOT SOME SNOW MOVING INTO THE MOUNTAINS. BUT HERE’S THE DEAL. IT’S SO DRY OUT, IT’S GETTING ZAPPED BEFORE IT ACTUALLY HITS THE GROUND. THAT WILL CHANGE AROUND MIDNIGHT, AS I DO ACTUALLY SEE US GETTING A LITTLE BIT OF RAIN. THERE’S A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY FOR THE MOUNTAINS, WHICH I’LL SHOW YOU IN A MINUTE. BUT LOOK AT THIS. OUR DEW POINTS. THAT’S HOW WE MEASURE THE MOISTURE IN THE ATMOSPHERE. MINUS TWO AROUND FIVE IN GREENVILLE. YOU HAVE TO TRUST ME WHEN I SAY THAT’S DRY AIR. IT LEADS TO BONE DRY HUMIDITY. YOU ADDED A LITTLE BIT OF WIND, SOME OF THOSE WILDFIRES TODAY, OR I SHOULD SAY BRUSH FIRES. I’VE GOT A LITTLE BIT OUT OF CONTROL, A LITTLE SPICY HERE AND THERE AROUND TOWN. 40 DEGREES IN ASHEVILLE, 45 IN SPARTANBURG. SO WE’RE OKAY RIGHT NOW. AND AS WE MOVE FORWARD HERE, THESE CLEAR SKIES ARE GOING TO TURN INTO SOME RAINY SKIES. HERE’S THE TIMELINE 37 DEGREES BY 9:00. RAIN AROUND MIDNIGHT. BUT IT’S WARM ENOUGH THAT IT’S JUSTRILLIONAIN FOR US IN THE UPSTATE. DIFFERENT STORY IN THE MOUNTAINS WHERE IT MAY BE A LIGHT WINTRY MIX. HONESTLY. I DON’T EXPECT HUGE IMPACTS OUT OF THIS, BUT IT’S SOMETHING WE’LL KEEP AN EYE ON THROUGH THE MORNING. THAT ADVISORY EXPIRES AT 7 A.M. BEFORE ANOTHER ONE KICKS IN. IN THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS OF THE MOUNTAINS. THIS FOR SEVERAL INCHES OF SNOW THAT EXPIRES AT 7 A.M. ON SATURDAY. THAT’S THE COLD AIR. ARRIVING TOMORROW IS GOING TO BE A TRANSITION DAY. WE’LL TUMBLE DOWN MIDDAY INTO A VERY COLD AFTERNOON EVENING. I’LL SHOW YOU THE NEW NUMBERS AND THE NEW TIMING STRAIGHT AHEAD. CHRIS. THANK YOU. WE HAVE NOW LEARNED THE NAMES OF THE TWO WOMEN WHO WERE KILLED YESTERDAY IN GREENVILLE COUNTY. THEY HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED BY THE CORONER AS 55 YEAR OLD ANISSA HENDERSON AND 56 YEAR OLD KELLY WHITTEN. THE CORONER SAYS THEY HAD TRAUMATIC HEAD INJURIES AND BURNS, BUT A CAUSE OF DEATH IS STILL PENDING IN THE WAKE OF THEIR DEATHS, TWO UPSTATE SHERIFFS ARE ASKING STATE LAWMAKERS TO PASS A BOND REFORM BILL. OUR ARENA JOINS US LIVE FROM THE GREENVILLE COUNTY LAW ENFORCEMENT CENTER WITH MORE ON THIS. RAY. WELL, NIGEL AND CAROL, GREENVILLE COUNTY SHERIFF HOBART LEWIS SAYS THAT PERSON OF INTEREST WAS RECENTLY RELEASED FROM JAIL AND WAS WEARING AN ANKLE MONITOR BEFORE YESTERDAY’S EVENTS TOOK PLACE. NOW, HENDERSON AND WITTEN WERE FOUND DEAD INSIDE OF A BURNING HOME ON MILLBROOK CIRCLE IN TAYLORS YESTERDAY. THE PERSON OF INTEREST IN THEIR CASE, ACCORDING TO DEPUTIES, WAS TRACKED BY A LICENSE PLATE READER TO A HOUSE IN LANDRUM IN SPARTANBURG COUNTY. DEPUTIES SAY ONCE THE MAN CAME OUT OF THE HOME, HE BRANDISHED A WEAPON, LEADING TO A DEPUTY INVOLVED SHOOTING. AND AS I MENTIONED EARLIER, SHERIFF LEWIS SAYS THE MAN WAS WEARING AN ANKLE MONITOR. NOW, SPARTANBURG COUNTY SHERIFF CHUCK WRIGHT SAYS YESTERDAY’S IMPACT EVENTS IMPACT LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS AS WELL. DEPUTIES ARE GREAT MEN AND WOMEN. THEY HAVE TO GO HOME.
