Winter storm could deliver potential snowfall to Piedmont Triad this weekend

There is potential for the Piedmont Triad to see its first major winter storm of the season this weekend.

A storm system will move in from the west bringing precipitation into our area Saturday night into Sunday morning, but FOX8 Meteorologist Emily Byrd warns that forecast details remain unclear.

"I'll tell you first there is a high degree of uncertainty in forecast because the models do not agree," Byrd said.

Based on the GFS model, snow could come into the Piedmont Triad with more in the mountains, but she emphasizes that this is not an official forecast.

Best case scenario? The Piedmont Triad could see a cold rain.

Worst case scenario? Snow could accumulate, depending on timing and other weather conditions.

Any snow total estimations will start coming in Thursday at the earliest.
