Cold high pressure across the Great Lakes will feed a cold northerly wind into eastern North Carolina through the weekend. An area of low pressure will develop well offshore and will likely spread some light snow into coastal areas Saturday afternoon and evening. Total amounts should be around 1 to 2 inches near the coast with little or no accumulation expected west of Highway 17. The cold air will linger into early next week as another storm system heads our way by Tuesday and Wednesday. Overnight lows over the weekend will average in the lower 20s while afternoon highs reach the 30s Saturday and lower 40s Sunday.
