Raleigh, N.C. — A winter-like pattern of cold temperatures is still in North Carolina on Wednesday, which will bring a chance of light snow flurries that lingers through the afternoon.
Despite a few snowflakes on Tuesday, the clouds rolled out overnight, and most of Wednesday morning will be clear and sunny. A few scattered clouds could move back in through the afternoon, though, which might drop a few more flakes.
"By lunchtime clouds begin to thicken up in spots," said WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner. "Again, a little flurry, a little sprinkle possible."
The chance of measurable precipitation on Wednesday, though, is only 15 percent, Gardner said.
Gardner said an offshore low pressure system that will develop at the end of the week will bring another chance of wintry precipitation to the Triangle over the weekend and into next week.
"Again, we'll have to wait and see," Gardner said. "This system could stay offshore. If it doesn't, if it spreads precipitation across our area on Friday, then it does look like it would be snow."
