RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Snow started to fall in central North Carolina Friday afternoon and it won’t stop until the early morning hours of Saturday.
The Winter Storm Warning was expanded for most of central North Carolina earlier Friday and is in effect until Saturday morning for higher impacts and worse travel conditions.
A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect for areas north and northwest of Wake County for lower impacts also through Saturday morning.
The difference between the two: from 1 to 5 inches of snow will be likely in the Advisory area, depending on the location.
In the Warning area, snow amounts could reach 3 inches and up to 5 inches or more in some places.
Here’s a timeline of what to expect from this winter weather event:
It will continue to snow across central North Carolina with accumulation between 1 to 5 inches forecast for areas around the Triangle and down to Moore County.
Snow will taper off and the skies will clear after midnight.
Snow will be gone by the time you wake up, but slick roads with black ice will be an issue.
Also bundle up Saturday morning with lows around 20 and single digit wind chills.
Saturday will be dry but the high temperatures will top out in the mid-30s before dropping into the teens Sunday morning.
The CBS 17 Storm Team will update this timeline as the storm develops.
