Raleigh, N.C. — The tail end of a storm that had the possibility of light snow on Friday fizzled quickly as it moved farther east, easing the Triangle into a cool weekend.
Early in the morning, light snowfall was spotted in Greensboro. Before 7 a.m., though, the storm broke up revealing blue skies in some parts of the Triangle.
"There's no precipitation left really with this (storm)," said WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner. "You might get a tiny little sprinkle out of it here in the next 30 minutes."
Skies cleared very quickly through 9 a.m., Gardner said. Friday will be chilly, but the sun will be shining all day.
Temperatures will again be cold on Saturday morning for runners of the Krispy Kreme Challenge at North Carolina State University. At 8 a.m., Gardner said, the temperature will be around 33 degrees.
On Sunday, a low pressure system forming off the coast will spread some cloud cover over the area. The system will bring a slight chance of rain showers, mostly in the eastern part of North Carolina.
