Snow storm to stay off coast

It now appears likely the East Coast Storm will stay off the coast.

Meteorologist Scott Dean says the East Coast Storm that has been making headlines recently, now looks like it will take a track much farther east than previously thought. The track is now expected to be well off the coast.

"So far we here in central NC should see a much reduced affect as it passes by to our east Monday night into Tuesday," Dean said.

He says clouds are expected to increase Monday with mild temperatures in the lower 60s.

"As the storm heads up the coast, there is a small chance for some light rain Monday night," Dean said. "If there is enough moisture around early Tuesday, as the colder air rushes in behind the exiting storm, we might see a brief period of light snow or a few snow showers."

No accumulation is expected. It will be colder Tuesday with highs around 40 with a breeze making it feel even colder.

There are a lot of uncertainties, so stay tuned to ABC 11 in the coming days as we get a better handle on the track.
