as i've been watching it over the last four or five hours, can you definitely tell that it is getting wound up and collecting some precipitation and it will move it into our area. it will all look like rain down here but all of a sudden, as it moves into the colder air sitting over us, we'll see it changing over. but most of it doesn't really arrive here until about sunrise or maybe a couple of hours before sunrise tomorrow. this is kind after busy map but bear with me. it is nice to see what the temperatures are doing along with the precipitation. the blue is snow and then the pink colors are either sleet or freezing rain. that is a wintry mix. we may start as snow t continues to be snow much longer up near the virginia line. at some point, that sleet changes over to freezing rain from raleigh south and west. these are the areas that are likely to have the heftiest accumulation of ice. it will get up to 1/4 inch or higher. it will start to break tree limbs and power lines and start to create some more widespread power outage is.
