Snow – Friday in Cary?

At 11 am on Thursday, February 11, 2016, WRAL‘s Elizabeth Gardner summarized that:

Snow showers are a likelihood [Friday]. It looks like snow may start mid-morning and linger through mid-afternoon. Current trends show very light amounts of precipitation – a trace to 1″.


Percentage Chance of Snow

WRAL’s hourly forecast for Friday shows these predictions:

7 am – no chance of snow
10 am – 3% chance of snow
1 pm – 39% chance of snow
4 pm – 54% chance of snow
7 pm – 11% chance of snow

Freezing Temperatures

Even if there isn’t much accumulation, our recent cold temperatures could create some slick spots on the roads. The high today isn’t expected to rise above 40, and, with a high of 36, it will be even colder tomorrow.

In fact, Gardner stated today that we’ll have abnormally low temperatures every day this week and all the way into next week. Temperature highs are not expected to rise above 35 until next Tuesday, when we’ll see a high of 47.

Before that, though, another chance of wintry precipitation is predicted for Monday, “even though, most likely, it’ll all get washed away with the rain,” Gardner said.
