Snow is back in the forecast for parts of central and eastern North Carolina leading into the weekend. This storm system will be different than most as we expect the highest snow totals to fall along the coast. Look for the snow to begin this evening and continue into early Saturday morning. Sunshine should return by Saturday afternoon.
Latest accumulation forecast
Coastal NC: 2-4" of snow including area around Wilmington, Jacksonville, and Morehead City. Accumulations may be slightly less along the immediate coast. There could also be a narrow band of 4-6" just inland from the coast, but that is not certain at this time.
Sandhills to Goldsboro: 1-3" for areas around Fayetteville to Goldsboro
Triangle to Wilson: Dusting - 2". Durham and Chapel Hill will be on the lower end of that total with no accumulation to a dusting expected. Raleigh may see around 1 to 2 inches with the higher end just southeast of Raleigh.
These forecasted accumulation totals may still change depending on the exact track of low pressure off the southeast coast. Stay tuned to News 14 Carolina and news14.com for the latest updates through the day and night.
