— 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.

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.
