— The Triangle could see up to an inch or more of rain Tuesday night, followed by a chance of a few flakes on Wednesday night, WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze said.

An evolving storm system was making its way toward North Carolina from the Gulf of Mexico Monday night, bringing rain with it Tuesday afternoon and into the evening.

The Triangle could see a few flakes on Wednesday, but nothing significant is expected, said WRAL Chief Meteorologist Greg Fishel. 

"It will be more wet than white so to speak," Maze said.

Any snow that falls will mostly affect areas north and east of Raleigh.

A high in the upper 40s Tuesday will give way to a low hanging around the freezing mark Tuesday night. On Wednesday, temperatures will be lower – a high in the upper 30s and low in upper 20s.

"Once that (storm system) pulls out, it's pretty quiet to end the week as we head back to 50 degrees,"  WRAL meteorologist Mike Moss said.
