Forecast models differ on weekend snow but temps sure to plummet

— Forecast models predicting snow around the Triangle differ in their predictions, but one thing’s for sure: Wednesday’s warmth won’t last long.

Most towns began the day with temperatures in the low to mid-50s, and those will warm slightly through the day to reach 60 degrees in some areas. But the watch is on for a big cool down over the weekend that could bring snow.

“Some cooler and less humid air will be coming in behind this front late today and tonight, and we’ll feel that difference,” said WRAL meteorologist Mike Moss.

At least one forecast model shows the chance of snow on Friday night into Saturday morning is greatest to the south and east of Raleigh, Moss said. Not all models show the same thing, though.

“That’s one camp of models,” Moss said. “Not all of them are looking that way. In this particular case, (the snow) would tend to end as we went into later in the day.”

Low temperatures over the weekend will drop into the teens while the high will be right around freezing.
