Another storm is headed to eastern North Carolina but will it be cold enough for snow?
Eastern Carolina has already received its average amount of snowfall for the year. Last week's snowfall averaged 3 to 5 inches and that is all we usually get for an entire year. Another storm is expected to form along the Gulf Coast and move northward on Monday bringing rain to the area. There is a possibility that enough cold air could be drawn into the system to change the rain to snow before ending early Tuesday. Late afternoon models also suggest that another system could form by Tuesday night near our coast. At that point any precipitation that falls would be in the form of snow. Our area doesn't usually get that many chances for snow in a year. In and it does make weather forecasting more interesting.
