— The Triangle could see some light freezing rain Tuesday morning, WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze said.

"An area of low pressure is tracking to the north and east and is going to bring the moisture," Maze explained.

The precipitation would likely fall before 10 a.m. north and east of Raleigh.

The rain would cause slick conditions on roadways that are expected to be re-frozen over Monday night. The same situation occurred Monday morning when the snow that began melting Sunday refroze as temperatures dropped into the teens across the region.

Maze said temperatures aren't expected to be as cold Tuesday morning. The morning is likely to begin in the 20s before climbing into the upper 30s.

Temperatures are expected to reach above freezing by about 10 a.m.

In anticipation of these conditions, the National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for counties across central North Carolina from 9 p.m. Monday until 10 a.m. Tuesday.

Wednesday and Thursday should be clear with temperatures in the upper 40s to low 50s.

    "Either the decision makers are inept, or their power tripping attitudes just love to prolong the suspense and anxiety of figuring out what to do with the kiddies at the last minute.

    You must be friends with time4real. Real sunshine all day long on GOLO.

    If Wake County had canceled too soon, there would be a huge outcry because they cancel at the drop of the hat and heaven forbid our kids have to make up the snow days! When they wait, they get called inept and power trippers. Please make up your minds!

    They have to drive the roads in the county to see how bad they are and they needed to give it time to melt today to be able to judge properly.

    deborah - you are correct. THe first makeup day for traditional calendar is Feb 15th - not the 19th. 2nd is June 10th I think? Anything further than that - eats into spring break days.

    Anyone see the forecast for this coming weekend???
