Quick Tuesday Afternoon Update

Computer models this afternoon indicate somewhat higher snow totals will be possible overnight. We may see accumulations closer to 2-4" on average across the Triangle to Goldsboro and Wilson with some 4-5" totals from east Raleigh to the east and northeast. These accumulations will be mainly on grassy surfaces. Some light snow and slush may build up on some roads late tonight into early Wednesday morning. For locations south of a line from Wake County to Goldsboro, look for a dusting to 2 inches.

These totals may still need to be adjusted based on radar trends into the night. You'll find the latest forecast through the night every 10 minutes on News 14 Carolina.

You reported only a trace of snow in Fayetteville, but here in Eastover (with Fayetteville literally down the street), we got at least 1.5" of snow on the grass. Where in Fayetteville do they measure the snowfall amounts? Of course, with 60 square miles, I guess it could be much different in north Fayetteville than south Fayetteville. Just wondering!

Good question! There was actually quite a difference in snowfall across Cumberland County. Downtown Fayetteville and areas to the south toward Hope Mills only had a trace of snow, while there was accumulation on the north side of Fayetteville like your 1.5" around Eastover and 2" in Stedman. A narrow band of heavier snow set up between Raleigh and Fayetteville creating those higher totals in northern Cumberland County and has much as 4.5" in Harnett County.
