Raleigh, N.C. — Say goodbye to the mild temperatures and sunshine and say hello – again – to the cold.
Old Man Winter could grace the Triangle with his presence, Wednesday, bringing another round of snow.
WRAL Chief Meteorologist Greg Fishel said Tuesday that rain is expected to develop across central North Carolina Wednesday afternoon and that it could turn to snow by the evening commute.
The area could see anywhere from a trace to 2 inches on grassy areas before the storm system moves out early Thursday. The most significant accumulation will be to the north and west of the Triangle.
Fishel said he doesn't expect the snow to cause any problems on the roadways during the day Wednesday – high temperatures will be in the low- to mid-40s. As temperatures dip to around or below freezing Wednesday night, there could be the possibility of black ice on area roads.
The snow won't last long, though.
Temperatures are expected to climb back in the low 40s Thursday, melting the snow.
