Saturday Morning Update

Light rain has begun to fall across most of central North Carolina this morning. We still expect the rain to change over to snow around midday in the Triangle as colder air moves into the region. That change over to snow should take a little longer to take place for areas south and east of the Triangle like Fayetteville and Goldsboro.

The exact amount of snowfall this afternoon and tonight will all depend on the track of an area of low pressure out of the Gulf of Mexico. At this time, we expect about 2-4" around the Triangle to Wilson and 1-2" from Fayetteville to Goldsboro. There could be a band of some heavier snow totals. That will all depend on the exact track of the low out of the Gulf of Mexico. If the low were to track farther east, locations east of the Triangle may pick up more snow while the Triangle sees less snow. We will continue to follow the latest weather data and provide weather updates every 10 minutes through the day with Weather on the Ones.

You can let us know what's happening in your neighborhood by e-mailing your weather report to When the snow starts to fall, you can also e-mail your snow pictures to that same address.
