— Triangle residents could see some light snow Thursday morning, but the brunt of the storm is expected to head east and hit the coast.

The Triangle is expected to see a trace to an inch of snow with areas to the south and east seeing up to 2 inches, WRAL chief meteorologist Greg Fishel said. The conditions could leave some roadways slick. 

"There may be areas north and west of Raleigh that don't get anything at all," Fishel said. 

The coast could see up to 4 inches of snow. 

Snow could begin falling in the area before 6 a.m. and should end by 7 or 8 a.m. The afternoon will be clear.

"It doesn't look like it is going to snow a long time," Fishel said. 

Wednesday is expected to be much like Tuesday with lots of sunshine with temperatures in the high 40s.

Temperatures will begin rising Friday, with a high of 49 degrees, and will be even better by Sunday and Monday, which could see 60- and 63-degree weather.

    All one has to do is watch the 6:00 news. If the chief's head bobbles at a higher rate than once per second, then there is a good chance of snow! The oscillation rate of the chief's bobble is a better indicator than Wetaherscope and the Dual Doppler 5000 combined!
