Morning snow provides a quick coat of white

Posted February 25, 2010

— An upper-level system swept across North Carolina bringing snow showers and flurries for a few hours Thursday morning.

Snow coated grass, branches and cars by mid-morning in Raleigh, but none stuck to the roads,  WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner said.

(Check out traffic cameras around the Triangle.)

Traffic cameras and WRAL viewers saw snow flurries falling in Wake, Durham, Johnston, Cumberland, Harnett, Lee, Moore, Wilson and Wayne counties.

"It has been snowing in Lucama since 8 a.m. No accumulation. Just beautiful to watch," viewer Lynda Boswell wrote.

The showers and flurries had tapered off by noon, but the cold is expected to linger. Thursday will see highs around 39 degrees, and strong winds will make it feel colder. "It's going to feel like the 20s for most of the day," Gardner said.

    still cant figure out why those who think the meteorologists at wral are so bad.....continue to watch their forecasts. i think they just love to have something to complain about.

    WHat "hype" are you talking about? I didnt see any reports except ones that said," it will likely snow a trace to an inch, the roads shouldn't be affected" THat seems to be exactly what it did. Ya'll need to actually READ the stories and not just the headlines. The only hype seems to be in YOUR reaction.

    Still snowing in Lillington. It was snowing big flakes, now it's small and not as heavy.
