— Flurries could fly Friday and another potentially significant snow storm could hit the Triangle and surrounding areas early next week, WRAL meteorologist Maze Maze said. 

The next whiff of winter precipitation is coming Friday evening. 

A weak upper level disturbance could produce light snow through Friday evening, but it won't add up to much. "We could wake up to snow on the ground Saturday," Maze said.

After dawn Saturday, the weekend looks clear but cold, with temperatures in the low 40s.

The more significant chance for snow comes Monday night. 

WRAL meteorologists are tracking the storm, which could be as large as the one that dropped about a foot of snow across the state on Christmas. Maze said it will all depend on the track of the storm. 

"You can't really say we're going to get anything big until it gets closer to us," he said.

    ForTheLoveOf, "Global warming is a theory"

    So is relativity and gravity...EVERYTHING is a theory at best, if you knew anything about science you would know that NO theory can be proven, only disproven...

    It's the end of time as we know it.

    In all reality, you conservatives need to just move on or get some new material. The global warming jokes became cold leftovers years ago.

    On 12/24, weather chief needs a tissue wrote: No snow for the triangle and you can blame Mike Maze for stewing the forecast up solid all week.

    I think we all remember how that turned out. So pardon if we don't believe any weather forecast from you.

    YOUJUSTCANTFIXSTUPID, I'd say something ironic about your name but I bet it'd get modded... Global warming is based on data since, what, we started collecting the temperatures a couple hundred years ago (at most?). So...the earth is millions of years old, has been through an ice age, as well as other large weather changes, and there is NO possibility that the climate changes on some sort of cyclical pattern? Nope, could only be global warming...

    Math is an exact science, so yes 2+2 = 4. Non exact sciences, such as climate change, are based off of repeatable tests. Global warming is a theory, at best, not the fact that even the "whole scientific community" backs up as you claim. Go google "global warming theory or fact".

    I saw your comment. There are many highly educated people that disagree with you, yet will not call you stupid. There is allot of evidence to show counter to your opinion. The link below is one. The link below proves that there is still a vigorous debate about global warming and if it is man made. This article says there is global warming, but shows that CO2 might not be the real cause.

    Here is the link to the article about CO2 rise only after temperature rise.

    avidreader - "...the dumbing down of this country starts with the public school system."

    And a whole basket full of excuses - from the small to medium-sized ones on the educator's desks to the usually larger ones the parents have at home.

    Take the computers and tvs out of your kid's rooms, take their cell phone away - and sit with them to help them study.

    If you can't do that, you're too selfish or lame to have had children in the first place, and we're ALL going to have to pay for your shortcomings one day.

    meBNme - "You can do moves on ice that would make holywood jelous."

    Yeah, but safe planned moves is better for a good safe drive.

    If ya can't walk on it, you shouldn't be driving on it cause it's too unpredictable.

    "Oh yeah one more thing I don't want to hear southern people can't drive in this. I am sorry we learn in the MUD in our big 4x4 trucks. hahaha Us country boys and girls can drive in it."

    A true Yankee doesn't need a 4x4 to drive in snow, even if it's half way up the doors of the car.

    So put that in your pipe and smoke it.

    For all of you who are constantly slamming the weather center, "the possibility of some snow"is exactly that, a possibility. No point in getting excited about that unless,of course, you are in grammar school. WRAL called the last snow storm on the money. They not only predicted snow, they also predicted the amounts by area and time it would start falling.
