— Parts of the Triad saw a light mixture of snow and sleet early Wednesday, but it did not arrive in the Triangle.

A winter weather advisory was in effect for most of the western parts of the state. As the system moved west and temperatures began to warm up, the chance of any frozen precipitation began to decrease in the Triangle, WRAL meteorologist Chris Thompson said.

By the time the system reached the Triangle, the precipitation came in the form of spotty showers.

The next big chance of rain in the Triangle may be Sunday as the next system arrives from the Gulf of Mexico, Gardner said. It would also bring warmer temperatures with highs expected in the mid-60s.

    Didn't they say yesterday that today was suppoed to be in the mid 50s and nothing about rain? And yesterday they had it being sunny and in the upper 50s Thursday and Friday. Now they have it only going to be 53 tomorrow and 48 Friday. You can't depend on them to plan anything. What's the use of having a five day forecast if you can't even get the next day right?

    Last time I heard that story, it meant 5 hours of driving from Durham to Wake Forest !!! "Nothing significant....."

    Right. Too much technology, perhaps ?

    Your mileage may vary...

    It was sleeting and snowing in Winston-Salem this morning. Wrecks on I-40 due to black ice!
