RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — A big change in the weather pattern Super Bowl weekend will lead to much colder and wetter weather for central North Carolina as well as some of the best snow chances of the season up in the mountains.

Despite record high temperatures in the Triangle again Friday, a strong cold front is still expected to move through Friday night bringing much colder temperatures this weekend.

The cold front will then stall along the NC coast and an area of low pressure will move north along the front and enhance rain chances across the state both days this weekend. The end result will be cold and wet weather, mainly Saturday night through the day Sunday.

There is also a second, upper level low pressure system that will move into the state, but likely stay over the mountains. This second low will also bring much colder air with it from the upper atmosphere and that’s most likely where the snow will be, up in the mountains.

While it will be much colder in central North Carolina, it will likely not be cold enough to turn our rain into snow.

Conditions are looking more favorable for snow in western North Carolina. The most likely timing for snow in the North Carolina mountains is Saturday night into Super Bowl Sunday. This is looking like the best chance of accumulating snow this winter for places like Asheville, Boone and the North Carolina ski resorts.

Drier weather and warmer temperatures return next Monday and Tuesday.

So far this winter the Triangle has only received a trace of snow and that was in January. The average amount of snow the Triangle receives each winter is just over five inches. This could be the least snowy winter in 17 years for central North Carolina.
