It's going to be a wintry, wet Wednesday

DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- Parts of central North Carolina experienced a brief brush with winter this week.

Rain and sleet arrived in the Triangle area Tuesday night; areas north and west of the Triangle saw a bit of sleet and snow.

Temperatures were below or around the freezing point Wednesday morning, making for a bit of an icy commute for some.

The cold, soaking rain will diminish Wednesday night but it will remain damp with slowly rising temperatures.

It will remain wet and chilly Thursday.

Wet, chilly, generally ugly weather continues for Friday and Saturday.

Saturday we will see another storm pass through the nation's midsection and draw tropical moisture north, leading to a more substantial rain. Temperatures will mainly be in the 40s through this time, topping out at or just above 50 each day.

On Sunday, we finally break out of the chilly air, but it still looks wet.
