Here's the forecast from ABC11 Meteorologist Steve Stewart:

As a storm system skirts the Southeast Coast today, we'll see some light rain showers across the area. The air aloft will be cold enough to support a few snowflakes mixing in at times, but we don't expect any accumulation. The surface temperatures will likely be above 32 degrees, so any snowflakes we see should not accumulate. A cold front will then pass through tonight and usher in some very cold air for early next week.

Despite this cold air, high pressure building overhead will promote sunshine and dry conditions for Monday and Tuesday. High temperatures will be in the low 30s in many locations with overnight lows in the teens! It will turn milder on Wednesday with clouds increasing ahead of our next storm system that is expected to dissipate once it reaches the mountains to our west. Nothing more than a rain or snow shower is possible across the region on Wednesday night as the remnants of that system cross Central North Carolina.

A more complex storm system may impact the area for Friday and next weekend, but details on timing, placement, and precipitation type are all too uncertain at this time. But it is something we will continue to watch for the next several days. At this point, rain seems the most likely precipitation type on Friday, but some snow nearby to the north and northwest of the Triangle is a possibility.
