Wednesday Winter Update

  • Posted: 01/13/2015 3:30 pm
  • Expires 10:00 pm

Northwest and Central Piedmont can expect generally a glaze to a tenth of ice. Areas East of the Triad up to 1/4 inch.

The area of precipitation coming in overnight is a bit farther offshore thus bringing generally lighter precipitation inland. We are still expecting travel issues Wednesday morning here so please check in with Local Media this evening before going to bed to see if there have been any late breaking updates.

At this time, this is what we could wake up to in the morning. This is a worst-case scenario so accumulations will generally be less than depicted. 

Possible Ice Accumulations...Will be less than shown.
