— 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.
