Here’s the deal: It’s probably going to snow.

When? The National Weather Service in Raleigh issued a winter storm warning for all of central North Carolina to begin at 11 p.m. Tuesday and last until 4 p.m. Wednesday. Snow is expected to arrive after midnight Tuesday and last well into Wednesday.

How much? Anywhere from 2 to 6 inches.

The weather service upgraded its snowfall accumulation forecast Tuesday morning, calling for 2 to 4 inches from the Sandhills through the Triangle and northeast, to the Virginia line. The forecast previously called for 2 inches of snow or less for much of that area.

Locally, higher amounts of 5 to 6 inches also are possible in parts of central North Carolina near the Triad and further north along the Virginia border, the weather service said in its Tuesday afternoon update.

Some forecast models show as much as 3 to 6 inches in most of central North Carolina, according to the weather service, but may not be as likely. The greatest impacts will likely be felt in the morning on Wednesday.

How cold will it be? Really cold, beginning Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Wind chills are expected to approach single digits across central North Carolina, the weather service said.

How can I know if the roads are safe? The latest road conditions can be found at drivenc.gov.

Should I get flashlights ready? It’s probably not a bad idea. Isolated power outages are possible as the cold moves in late Tuesday night, the weather service said.
