Winter Weather Possible Through Saturday

We have the potential to see winter weather for the next several days across Johnston County.

Very light snow showers or flurries will develop this afternoon and spread east through the evening hours as a disturbance tracks rapidly east across the Carolinas.  A dusting of snow accumulation is possible, primarily north and west.

Forecasters are keeping an eye on a low pressure system that will track from the Deep South to the Carolina Coast on Friday. The system is expected to rapidly intensify and track northward along the coast late-Friday into Saturday. The National Weather Service says confidence is growing that a winter storm will impact Central North Carolina late-Thursday through Saturday.  While a winter storm appears probable, significant uncertainty remains regarding details on timing, precipitation type, amount and possible impacts. Residents are urged to pay close attention to the forecast as the week progresses.
