Snowflakes fluttered down from the clouds on Monday and gathered on flowers, statues and students during the first snow of the season. The snow followed a cold air weather system that entered Columbia on Sunday night. Total daytime accumulation is expected to be less than one inch, according to the National Weather Service, and temperatures are expected to rise throughout the week.
