The weather is nasty, and it’s expected to stay that way through much of Saturday.
The Triad, Hillsborough and Chapel Hill are under a winter storm warning until 4 p.m. Saturday, according to the National Weather Service. Snow might accumulate 2 to 4 inches as far east as Orange County, and bridges could become hazardous.
Parts of the Triangle including Wake, Franklin, Vance and Warren counties, are under a winter weather advisory until 4 p.m. Saturday, according to the NWS. This area is forecast to remain at or above freezing, so any precipitation that falls is more likely to accumulate as 1 to 2 inches of slush or wet snow. Roads could become slick.
In both areas, rain could mix with snow before precipitation ends Saturday.
