— A high pressure system building over central North Carolina is transporting colder air into the region and could bring snow on Saturday.

"It is too early to get into details, but there is the possibility of snow during the day on Saturday," WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze said.

Wednesday will be mostly sunny and cooler with temperatures in the upper 40s to low 50s.

"It will be so nice to see the bright sunshine return to the area, but it comes with a chilly side-kick," said WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner.

Dry weather and sunshine will prevail until Friday when another storm system moves into the area.

"The rain will arrive late Friday and continue into Saturday," WRAL Chief Meteorologist Greg Fishel said.

The weather system has the potential to bring some wet snow to the state. The track of the storm and the amount of cold air available will determine whether or not wintry precipitation forms.

    Afraid somebody will criticize the weather forecasters and say something not nice???

    Of course! WRAL does a good job of weeding out the bad from the good. Thanks WRAL for a job well done.

    "Looks like northeast corner of the state would see something here. By 7am Sunday, the party is over"

    yep, snow for the Outer Banks and South Florida, but not here.

    Dude, the party was over before it began. 0 for 3 in snow predictions at wral and it ain't even winter yet!

    Thing is, these guys can't get it right on the very day they are forecasting for, much less ANY days out! Stick your finger in the air, you have as much a chance at getting right!

    Ok, to all you little happy sunshiney people who where just so offended by my opinion of NC- yes, if I had the money I would so move out of this state. The spring and summers here are disgusting and the people are not that great.
