The chance for more snow is looking more likely with a cold front expected to move across North Carolina late Tuesday into Wednesday, the latest forecasts say.
“I still have us in the chance category, albeit a higher chance,” ABC11 meteorologist Steve Stewart said Saturday morning. “Too early to talk timing, too early to talk amounts, but it’s looking more promising that we’ll get some precipitation coming in.”
Conditions should support at least light precipitation in central North Carolina beginning Tuesday night, according to the National Weather Service Raleigh forecast office.
Since temperatures are expected to reach the 40s to 50s Tuesday afternoon, the first precipitation to fall from the sky is likely to be rain or a snowy mix through early Tuesday evening.
“This system certainly has the potential to produce measurable snow over the middle Atlantic states, including central N.C., but forecasting such an occurrence with any degree of confidence at this time range would be premature,” the weather service said.
Forecasts call for high temperatures right at or just above freezing for much of central N.C. on Wednesday.
