Winter storm still bringing snow, ice, rain to central NC Sunday

News

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – A winter storm is still on track to bring a mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain, and rain to central North Carolina on Sunday. Our biggest concern will be possible icing on roads and power lines.

The storm system is currently moving over the pacific northwest.

Some snow will move in first early Sunday before changing over to sleet and freezing rain. The afternoon will mainly be rain before changing back into snow at night while the system pulls away.

Our main concern will be icy roads heading into Monday morning when lows are expected to drop into the 20s.

What has changed Thursday afternoon? Not a whole lot other than increasing confidence of a wintry mix in central NC.

Both the European and American long range models agree mainly sleet and freezing rain early Sunday before a change over to rain in the afternoon.

Here’s what we don’t know: the exact path of the storm and amounts.

The bottom line is Sunday will be a messy, cold, wet, and windy.
