Raleigh, N.C. — Cold air will blow through the Triangle Thursday evening as residents wait to see if Mother Nature brings some snow on Sunday.
"Cold air really begins to plow in as we head toward Friday," WRAL Chief Meteorologist Greg Fishel said.
Thursday's high will be 55 degrees, but it will get cooler and much windier as the day progresses, said WRAL Meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner.
"It's not going to be that pleasant of a day," she said.
Wind chills could be in the 30s.
A system currently over the Pacific Ocean could bring light rain or snow into the Triangle Sunday, but it is too early to tell for sure, Fishel said.
"We are still going with the basic idea of light rain turning into light snow before ending," Fishel said.
If snow falls, it would likely occur during the day Sunday.
