Snow in the forecast? What can you expect with this next system?

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - An area of low pressure, developing to our south, could bring portions of the area snow overnight Thursday.

The cold front associated with this system will continue to move south, dropping our temperatures throughout the day Thursday; however, temperatures are expected to reach the upper 60s, near 70 in some locations.

The rain will start Thursday evening with the majority of the precipitation moving in overnight.

As of now, counties to our north could see snow and/or a light wintry mix, but no accumulation is expected. However, most of southeastern North Carolina will see mainly rain with up to an inch possible.

Most of the snow will occur north and west of the area where the colder air is likely to catch up with the precipitation.

The central and western portion of the state is currently under a Winter Storm Watch, which includes Raleigh/Durham.

No watches or warning have been issued for our area.

Stay tuned for more updates.
