4:35 p.m.: Flurries and light snow have begun falling in parts of Raleigh, Durham and Orange County, and sleet was reported in the Sandhills.
WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze said freezing rain is expected to follow and the evening wears on. Freezing rain presents the biggest danger because it will fall on frozen ground, creating ice.
“I think the primary event, especially around the Triangle, is going to be freezing rain, which could be crippling for the area,” he said. “You’re not going to go anywhere tomorrow. If you think you’re going to work, going to school, you’re not.”
