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.
Winter Weather Advisory until noon today for Ashe, Alleghany, and Watauga Counties.
Snow could accumulate to 1", and with gusty winds, travel may be slippery. Take care and be safe. pic.twitter.com/Hw39tV0HWj
