Wintry weather is headed our way this afternoon.

We're not as cold this morning as we have been the past few mornings, but temperatures are hovering in the 20-degree range. The high today is 35 degrees but once the snow starts you will see temperatures dropping a little bit.

The bulk of the precipitation is still westward of the mountains, but some of the snow is expected to pass over the mountains and into the Piedmont. Accumulation in the Triad should well below an inch. A 1/4 to 1/3 of an inch of snow is expected between 5 and 8 p.m.

Areas west of the Blue Ridge could get up to an inch of snow.

Skies will clear Wednesday night and we could see sleet and snow as early as Thursday night.  The wintry mix could turn to snow and end late Saturday.

This could be a major winter storm because of the ice we are expecting on Friday.
