6:01 am
ground temperatures in the mid-40s. even if you've got a burst of snow, the worst it would do is stick to the grass for an hour or so and be gone. so with that said, most of us probably won't get flakes today. it's the farther north that you live, so roxboro, typical, these areas will get light snow. you're seeing on radar a little bit of light activity, that's a long way from the radar side, the beam is looking pretty high up into the sky at that point. there's no guarantee the flakes are making it to the ground but there's a potential by triad. the potential is moving off to the northeast right now. most of us are just dealing with clouds and above freezing. that's another issue, we're not too concerned about this being a major problem. the lion's share of this event will be out to the mountains and northwest piedmont. and elsewhere, heavier rain around charleston and the rain
6:02 am
raleigh, south and east. rain-snow mix with zero accumulation around the triangle. once again, northern counties and farther north, a light snow dusting the grass and that's about it. otherwise, breaks in the clouds possible late afternoon right before sunset. temperatures will be cool today. low 40s for highs. you think that's cool, wait until the next few days where highs will struggle to get to the mid-30s. more on that in a few minutes. caitlin: can't say i'm looking forward to that part. thanks, steve. join the weather team by taking pictures and video if you see any snow falling in your neighborhood. use it to us using the hashtag # #abceyewitness. and two teenagers killed in a hit and run. five teenagers went to grab some

6:14 am
parts of the triangle could see rain and snow while the sand wind chills will likely just be rain.hills will likely just be rain. steve will have the breakdown in a few minutes. 28-year-old joseph faroque was arrested at richmond international airport on friday. mohammed allegedly drove him to the airport. faroque was trying to get to syria to join isis. both men are from the washington d.c. area. president barack obama has signed an emergency declaration for flint, michigan. that city is suffering a crisis because of high levels of lead in their drinking water. fema will coordinate all the rescue efforts including filters, cartridges and other items for 90 days. federal funding will also be made available. new this morning, an explosion at a chemical plant leaves one worker dead and three others injured. pasadena police say it happened

bayport plant. the company says the workers were doing a routine function when the contractor's equipment exploded. one of those contractors died at the scene. and now to an intense rescue that was caught on camera. fres fresno firefighters capturing this video on a gopro camera. in it, a crew helping a mother, father and baby out of a window. that was the only way out after smoke and flames filled the stairwell at their apartment complex. in all, seven people escaped from the fire. thankfully, everyone is expected to be okay. more proof now a girl's best friend might not be her diamond but instead, her dog. bella, a three-year-old yellow lab melted the hearts of many when this photo emerged of her and her owner. that pup is specially trained to help her cope with anxiety. let's be honest, it's stressful on the wedding day. the pup was there by her side to
6:16 am
she says this photo has helped bring attention to service dogs and the role they play in their owner's lives. how sweet is that. i'm a dog lover and especially biased to yellow labs. that's what we have too. and it is amazing what service dogs can do, steve. from anxiety to diabetes. i think it runs the list, with seizure dogs. they can be trained to do what they do. how about your dogs. do you think your little dogs have that in their future? you think they're little grinches, but you still love them, right? steve: absolutely. caitlin: okay. all right. let's talk about the snow. steve: okay, again, right out of the gate here, if it does happen where you live, enjoy. it will be a novelty and zero problems. that's the good thing. let's get right to it. show you doppler xp. it looks impressive. very light precipitation occurring. this is what we call an algorithm. the model puts on top of the
6:17 am
it kind of depicts where you're suggesting it would be snow and, again, we're probably seeing snow flakes falling. maybe not making it to the ground. some of this will be melting as it gets closer to the service and this is a little bit what we call aloft because the radar is quite aways away from this. but still there's the potential if you live in pearson county right now, send me an e-mail message if you're getting flakes coming down. we're not getting any reports of that just yet but there is the potential as we go through the morning to see a little bit more. from raleigh southward, primarily a rain event for us. maybe a couple of flakes mixed in. big-time novelty at that. once you get to the triangle northward up to pearson county, we'll have a rain-snow mix but no accumulation. farther north, that's where we'll see probably a light snow event and accumulating snow on grassy services up to the north, and that might only last for a couple of hours before it melts off. temperatures just too warm. now, predictor, our forecast
6:18 am
was showing yesterday. it shows a big area with zero precipitation with rain to the south and snow off to the north. maybe a couple of flakes mixed in around the triangle and the i-45 corridor and snow to the north. we can't take this shift one way or the other. could be a little different. with ground temperatures in the mid-40s, not an issue. clouds lingering in the afternoon and after that, clouds could break a little bit. accumulating snow would be well off to the north, zero for us. again, not an issue whatsoever. the bigger issue here, let's talk about the cold air that's coming. arctic blast will be here for tomorrow. meantime, rdu right now, we're seeing temperatures in the 30s, mostly cloudy skies, 30s everywhere. no freezing temperatures at all, and we are colder than yesterday, about 5-7 degrees and that's about it. the headlines goes like this. some snow, no problems. temperatures in the 40s, not concerned about that.
6:19 am
it's looking more likely and yeah, it's going to get very cold. all week long will be cold. the coldest air will come tomorrow into tuesday. we'll try to moderate a little bit. look what happens. the upper-level low will be pinwheeling on through. this is the european model. keeping us cold by the end of the week and with precipitation on friday, there is that possibility, could be a little mix in there as well friday night. wind chill forecast, monday morning, single digits and teens. a lot of us have the day off, but tuesday, back to school, for the kids, it's really going to be cold out there, folks. so make sure those kids really bundle up as they head back to school on tuesday morning. look at the numbers. highs in the 30s, and you factor a breeze in, it's going to feel like the 20s for a peak, ambient temperature 18 tuesday morning, but feels like single dillsgits with that breeze. rain likely on friday. the european model trying to show a shower lingering saturday morning, which could be a little bit of a wintry precipitation mixed in.
6:20 am
that's seven days out. it's just worth a mention on one of the models. again, if it happens, not a big deal. caitlin: it'll be pretty. exactly. that's the kind of snow i like. doesn't cause any problems. thanks, steve. a local warehouse is refurbishing thousands of

it's a tangle of multiple symptoms. brintellix (vortioxetine) is a prescription medicine for depression. brintellix may start to untangle or help improve the multiple symptoms of depression. "for me, brintellix made a difference." tell your doctor right away if your depression worsens, or you have unusual changes in mood, behavior or thoughts of suicide. antidepressants can increase these in children, teens, and young adults. brintellix has not been studied in children. do not take with maois. tell your doctor about your medications, including migraine, psychiatric and depression medications, to avoid a potentially life-threatening condition. increased risk of bleeding or bruising may occur, especially if taken with nsaid pain relievers, aspirin, or blood thinners. manic episodes or vision problems may occur in some people. may cause low sodium levels. the most common side effects are nausea, constipation
6:34 am
brintellix did not have significant impact on weight. ask your doctor if brintellix could make a difference for you. steve: welcome back, everybody. good morning to you on this sunday, cloudy skies, a little bit of precipitation north and west of the triangle right now. a couple of flakes coming on down, but temperatures above freezing everywhere. roxboro, 36. one of the coldest spots out there. mainly 30s in the triangle from lower 40s along the 95 corridor. it's when you step out the door this morning, clouds, maybe a shower, could be flakes mixed in depending on where you live the
6:35 am
temperatures won't move much. around 40 or so by mid-day today. definitely cloudy. heavier showers well off to the east today. we could get light rain coming in here and, again, that line of mixed precipitation is mainly going to be in the triangle northward. if you look at this and take it literally, that will be all snow right now north of the triad pushing up into virginia. that's the best place or opportunity for accumulating snow on grassy surfaces. for the rest of us, i don't see that happening. you want to see cold air, here it comes. temperatures going way down, mid-30s. this is not with the wind chill. you factor the wind, it's going to be even colder than that and we'll moderate a little bit. by the end of the week, we'll see temperatures below average. it's a cold week coming up here. traveling out of rdu, looks pretty good. no major hubs at this hour showing no major delays. caitlin: an update on the

6:38 am
after her caitlin: good morning and
6:39 am
here's what's making headlines so far this morning. we're watching for a chance of snow flurries today. parts of the triangle could see a little rain mixed in with snow while the sand hills will likely just be rain. steve has the full forecast but we want to pass along to you that this is not snow that will stick or cause any problems. to breaking news in harnett county. sad news to pass along this morning. the highway patrol is looking for an suv that hit and killed two teenagers and critically injured another. it all happened on highway 421 near the harnett-lee county line. we're told a 13 and 16-year-old were killed and a 14-year-old critically injured. a motorcyclist killed in a wrong way crash in fayetteville. 26-year-old justin dun lap was traveling south on gillespie street when crossed into oncoming traffic and hit that motorcyclist. he was killed. celine dion has suffered yet another loss two days after the death of her husband, the
6:40 am
age of 59. daniel dion was the eighth of 14 dion children. both he and celine's 73-year-old husband rene angelil died from cancer. this morning, you're helping a wake county mom to get transportation for t of her children with special needs. more than $18,000 raised so far, and that's not all. heather waliga introduces us to a wake forest car club pitching in too. heather: these mustangs are on a mission, about to embark on a road trip for a raleigh single mother who needs help getting her daughters around. 12-year-old jada and nine-year-old morgan, both born with a rare brain disorder. ursula thompson has to lift and care for them everywhere they go. >> even a simple task like going to the grocery store, it takes 20 minutes or so to get in the car and get on our way. heather: so the car club got to work planning this poker run
6:41 am
all the proceeds will go towards a new handicapped accessible van. >> it's more about ursula and what she needs joo. heather: since the story first aired, they have raised $16,000 of their $50,000 goal. >> if we don't meet our goal today, it's not the end of the road. what we plan on doing here starting monday, is going out and challenging the businesses locally and other people we know, other mustang car clubs and other car clubs. heather: helping doing things as a family. >> the heart of people to come out and support someone in the community has been a beautiful day. caitlin: that was heather waliga with that report. if you missed the poker run and would like to help ursula with her goal, go to and look for more information.
6:42 am
there so thanks to her and others who support families in need. we love to see that, steve. and some of us love to see snow. steve: you're right. and ground temperatures in the 40s, if we were to get a really heavy burst of snow, it would overcome the ground temperature and stick, but i don't see that happening. at worst, we'll see some flakes in the sky today in the triangle farther north. we'll get light snow falling. from the triad northward, we could see it sticking on grassy surfaces and things like that. but it's dry in the triangle. a little bit of light snow is falling in person county. i haven't gotten any reports just yet of it touching the ground. it could be evaporating or melting on the way down, too. it's a long way down from the radar. from raleigh south ward, a light rain event, could be a few flakes mixed in there as well.
6:43 am
rain-snow mix but no accumulating snow and from say roxboro northward, that's where we'll probably see mainly a light snow event, could see a dusting on grassy surfaces and, again, even that, probably only going to last a couple of hours. if you look at the latest model run here, showing light showers, rain to the south, broken precipitation elsewhere with snow farther off to the north. in our northern counties, a little bit of light snow and even as we go into the afternoon hours, a little bit left over, possibility of a mix. so again, this is not a major issue here. accumulating snow, that same model, shows anything will be up in virginia for the most part. so we stay quiet. so in the meantime, a live look into durham, seeing cloudy skies, still dry, temperatures upper 30s, light breeze around 2 miles per hour. everybody above freezing this morning, 40s along the 95 corridor. colder than yesterday morning, for sure. if you want cold, here it comes. it'll be here tomorrow and last all the way through tuesday. we'll try to moderate the air

will take everything they can get. we're talking 1-3 at about 2500 feet so not a major amount at all. again, we're watching a little bit of that activity. there's that low racing out. the cold air will come spilling in, as the mass comes in tomorrow, temperatures well below average. should be 51, we'll be in the 30s. 40s for high temperature today. in the afternoon, we might see the clouds breaking a little bit, becoming clear overnight tonight and a cold one tomorrow morning. in the low to mid-20s. not necessarily teens just yet. that will happen tuesday morning. that's when we'll be the coldest. i think wednesday even 19 degrees, only getting to 41. wednesday and thursday, a weak little front will come on by. showing a little flurry overnight. not a big deal. friday we'll get rain and temperatures mid-40s. caitlin: so that could be a
