Skies clearing across Triangle

Posted November 27, 2013

— Flurries fell across the Triangle late Wednesday afternoon, but the fleeting flakes were no threat to the evening commute.

 "The precipitation is light and temperatures are above freezing," WRAL Chief Meteorologist Greg Fishel said.

WRAL viewers reported flurries, light snow or sleet in Raleigh, Chapel Hill, Carrboro, and elsewhere.

"We've got a couple of sprinkles and harmless flurries floating around in the Triangle and east, but they don't last," Fishel said. "Skies will clear out later this evening and overnight. Then it will get really cold."

Temperatures are expected to plummet into the low 20s overnight.

Thanksgiving Day will be clear and cold.

"We'll have gorgeous sunshine, but that's not doing a whole lot in terms of warming things up," Fishel said.

The high Thursday will reach 42 degrees in Raleigh, which is about 15 degrees below normal.

"It's not supposed to be this cold this early," Fishel said.

    I really was not too worried until I started seeing white bears in the back yard.

    Is AGW - ALL Gore Worried?

    Rain lingering until late in the day? Has anyone seen the radar?

    It was sleeting in SW Durham around 12:30 today. I'm on the lookout for flurries now.

    thomasparsons - "A day ago you said it was going to be 25 degrees last night and it felt like 70...enough with the Flurries talk for now thanks."

    No, they said we'd have one warm up day Tuesday, and then it would get cold again, and it has.

    I think you've gotten your days mixed up due to the holiday perhaps.
