A significant winter storm with heavy snow hit overnight and continues this morning.

Snow fell heavy overnight and is expected to taper off west to east during the morning near rush hour. As it tapers off and for a short period afterwards, there may be some light and patchy freezing drizzle or mist. This will not be enough to cause any power issues.

A general 4 to 6 inches across our coverage area is expected, with amounts closer to 4 inches in the north and closer to 6 inches south and east of I-40 where precipitation rates should be higher. Areas near RDU and up toward Roanoke Rapids and the northwest side of Rocky Mount may say 6 to 8 inches.
