Wednesday snow hits mostly south

RALEIGH The ABC11 AccuWeather team said most of the snow ended up more south and east than expected.

The heavier amounts fell in places like Johnson County and south towards Fayetteville. There was a layer of snow in grassy areas and on trees, but it didn't really stick on the pavment thanks to warm ground temperatures and conditions were mostly wet for drivers.

Some school districts across the area like Wake County announced delays for Wednesday.

Despite the lack of accumulation on most main roads, the Highway Patrol warned drivers to take it easy and be on the lookout for slick spots.

DOT crews have been preparing for the worst all winter. They started putting brine on the roads Tuesday, and said they were ready with salt and sand if any snow or ice accumulated.

The cold weather will last into Thursday, then we'll see a big warm up with highs in the 60s by the weekend.
