— It's the first potential winter storm, and it's still hours away.

But, the signs of winter weather are already showing up in the stores.

Mark Pygott, the manager at a local Food Lion says customers are already going after the bread.

Lots of people have decided to buy early.

With the chance of ice on the way, some are buying in bulk, like this woman, who had already the hit bread aisle, and was moving towards the milk.

Speaking of milk, there's still plenty available.

Here's an ice twist.

At Dorton Arena, technical difficulties melted the ice at the home of the Raleigh IceCaps.

They're busy trying to make ice as the storm comes in.
