Light snow could dust Triangle

Posted February 11, 2010

— The Triangle could see anywhere from a dusting to an inch of snow as a storm system moves through central North Carolina Friday night into early Saturday, WRAL chief meteorologist Greg Fishel said.

Fishel said the system is mainly going to affect the southeastern portion of the state, but a shift in the storm's path could cause some snow accumulation. The accumulation would occur mostly on grassy surfaces.

WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze said Fayetteville and other areas south of the Triangle could see between 1 and 3 inches of snow.

“It will all be Friday night and exit by Saturday morning,” Fishel said.

By Sunday things will clear up in time for another system to move through on Monday.

“That would be strictly a Monday event,” Fishel said.

It is too soon to tell how much, if any, snow would be created by Monday’s system, Fishel said.

Computer models show the system would move through during the day on Monday.

    "Yep and "who" called for 10-15

    Who? This has to be a trick question because WRAL didn't call for 10-15" in Raleigh.

    I'm with you grayboomerang. And I am never ready for spring but, this year I am more than ready. This cold air is drying my beautiful skin up.

    wow, Mr. O'Fishel just does not give up does he. They issue winter storm watches for the gulf coast, Wilmington, Myrtle Beach and other tropical places and he just can't stand it. Got to find a way to work something into this area. Can we PLEASE just give it up wral? A "dusting to an inch" is not even worth mentioning and since the "models are trending this way and that way" I'd say just except the ground hog, the main varmint, was correct, we're done for the year. But, this does explain the overload at Kroger today. As Charlie Brown says, good grief!

    Hmmm. The ones that come from this direction I am less skeptical of. They generally bring something, if it tracks a little bit north, as 'Guitar88' suggested, we will get some snow, IMO.
