More Snow in Denver Could Mean a Rainy New Years Eve for North Carolina

It's a forecast the folks in Denver and air travelers don't want to hear -- more snow for the Rockies.

The snow is falling in Denver this Thursday evening and will likely continue into Friday. Another foot of snow is possible. This is on top of all the snow that region saw just before Christmas.

The Denver blizzard just before Christmas eventually made its way across the U.S. and produced a rainy Christmas Day in the Carolinas. The current storm system over the Rockies will also slowly makes its way across the country and could give us a wet New Years Eve and New Years Day.

Before the storm gets to our part of the country, it will cross the south central U.S. where it could produce severe weather.

The Storms Prediction Center ( has placed East Texas and parts of Louisiana under a "slight risk" for severe weather. Gusty winds, hail, and even tornadoes are a possibility late Friday night into Saturday from East Texas to the Gulf Coast states.

It's another big storm that could impact much of the U.S. Here in North Carolina, we do not expect any wintry weather and we do not expect any severe weather. However, a rain looks to be a good bet for your New Years Eve night plans. We'll keep you posted on this storm as it tracks closer to North Carolina.
