— The Triangle's normal temperature time of year is 60 degrees, but the weather will be anything but normal this week as temperatures dip as low as 22 degrees and rise as high as 72.

"We’re in for some weather whiplash," said WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner. "Enjoy the sunshine today before the craziness begins."

That craziness could include a high of 72 degrees on Wednesday followed by the possibility of wintry weather on Thursday when temperatures take a nose dive.

"That's going to be an incredible drop," Gardner said. "That may be close to a record drop of temperature in 24 hours."

The Triangle could see a mix of rain, sleet and snow if moisture mixes with the expected cold air.

Friday will warm to about 40 degrees, and the weekend looks beautiful with highs in the 50s.

    anyone who buys water right before a winter storm is just thirsty. this winter storm is a conspiracy between Greg Fischel, Harris Teeter and the Weather Channel. Be smart people! Do not fall for their tricks!

    I concur with your ?? response Chris. What does her comment have to do with the weather? It would appear that both ladies may have severe cases of lalalanditis.

    Wow....just wow. Now the grocery stores and news outlets are conspiring to make folks run to the grocery store?
    I don't even want to know what kind of world you live in.

    I actually like your comments. It's about time more plain speaking people got a voice here instead of all the liberal whining!
