Snow is falling in Triangle

Posted February 13, 2014

UPDATE: 1:15 p.m.: Snow's back in the area with some changeover from rain to snow in downtown Raleigh. The eastern part of the WRAL viewing area is seeing a bit of patchy light rain and is changing over to sleet in some areas.

"We might start to see the roads covered up, but our temperatures aren't as cold as yesterday," WRAL Meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner said. "So, that might help keep a lot of this from sticking to the roads, unlike it did yesterday."

Back to the west, the snow is falling heavily. To the east, there's rain along Interstate 95 right now, but that's expected to change over shortly.

Temperatures ranged in the low to mid-30s, warming up as you head east. But as the snow moves into the area, those temperatures will drop to around the freezing mark.

It's all supposed to be over by dinnertime, but another disturbance will move into the area late Friday into early Saturday. It will start as rain and possibly end with some light snow.

"But that shouldn't be much of an issue for us," Gardner said.


After a short break, winter precipitation is falling again in the area, with reports of sleet, freezing rain and snow in areas across central North Carolina.

A winter storm warning remains in effect for 6 p.m. as a storm system, expected to drop up to 4 inches of additional snow and precipitation, moves into the Triangle and central North Carolina.

Areas of snow were expected to redevelop in the region by noon and continue through the afternoon hours.
