As the weekend quickly closes in, a question mark still looms over the Piedmont Triad as counties brace for snow, sleet or freezing rain.
FOX8 Meteorologist Emily Byrd reports there is a 50 percent chance of this weekend's wintry weather becoming a "significant weather event" for much of the Triad.
That number is higher towards the mountains at 70 percent.
It drops to 30 percent towards the southeast of the Triad.
A light snowfall is already ushering in the winter in Boone Wednesday morning.
Alleghany, Ashe and other mountain counties are under a winter weather advisory.
