The last two days have been spring like across eastern North Carolina but winter will make a strong return to our area over the weekend. A cold front will push to the coast Saturday morning and that will end our spell of spring for a while. The front will be accompanied by some rain as low pressure develops just to our south and comes across the area Saturday night. This system will move northeast and out of the area Sunday only to be followed by another area of low pressure Sunday evening. By Sunday night many interior locations will be cold enough that rain could turn to snow. The big question as of Friday night is exactly where the storm will form and how strong it will get. Some of the computer models suggest inland locations could see a few inches of snow by Monday morning while the coast has mainly rain. We've certainly seen some big snowstorms during early March in the past. Most notably, we saw 1 to 2 feet of snow across inland areas of the state on March 1 and 2, 1980. We're not likely to see that but some areas may see more snowflakes fall by Monday.
