...Light snow falling over northern portions of the Piedmont
Triad...

As precipitation rates have increased, the rain has mixed with and
changed to wet snow over most of Forsyth and Guilford Counties.
This includes the Winston-Salem to Greensboro. Primarily rain was
falling just to the east and south of Greensboro and High Point,
including most of Davidson, Randolph, and Alamance Counties. Even
though snow was falling, the streets and roads were wet as the
temperatures were in the mid 30s. The rain/snow line is expected
to move 25 miles south and east, reaching near a Lexington to
Burlington line during the early afternoon. Travel problems are
not expected through 300 PM as road temperatures remain well
above freezing.

...Rain mixing with and changing to wet snow across the Northern
Piedmont of North Carolina...

As precipitation rates have increased and temperatures cool, the
rain has mixed with and changed to wet snow from Burlington and
Roxboro to near Henderson. Some wet snowflakes have been mixing
with the rain to the south and east of this region including
southern Alamance, Orange, northern Durham, and Vance Counties.
Even where the snow was falling, the streets and roads were wet
as the temperatures were in the mid 30s. The rain/snow line is
expected to waver more to the south through 300 PM, with a change
to wet snow possible as far south as Durham, Wake Forest, and
Louisburg. However, travel problems are not expected through 300
PM as road temperatures remain well above freezing and just wet.
Warmer air aloft will likely change the wet snow to rain by this
evening, especially to the south of a line from Burlington to
Roxboro, or near the Interstate 85 corridor.
