WRAL's latest is "it depends". As always, we are right on the dividing line, so we may get snow, may get wintry mix (slushy/ice/rain/snow). I don't see anywhere them calling for anything huge. Temperatures will 'crash' before snow, wintry-mix :: WRAL.com

Well, it's a good sign that it might happen because they now have spring/summer clothes in the stores (looks like yellow and shades of purple are in-but I digress ). Past snows that have caught me by surprise sent me to the mall for kids boots, gloves, only to find summer stuff! So silly!

Yep, we always seem to be on that line. I think that's why we get caught by surprise a lot. When you least expect it.....

I've got 9 kids on my street who will be looking to me for french toast and snow cream, better get to the store

I heard one of the weathermen on TV last night say it "would possibly be significant", though that is a very politician-like way to leave it open for anything. still, looks like the system itself is a force to be reckoned with and some kind of H2O will come down, it just depends what state it's in.

Learn from me If they say we'll get walloped with snow, clear the house of any visitors you don't want living with you for the next 4 days Same goes for dinner parties Friday night. I once had my brother in law and his wife, with the hubby, me and our toddler, for days.... it was awful. The BIL was a bear of a man and ate like one every 2 hrs! I thought if it continued we'd have to live off snow

I don't mind snow at all, but we are travelling to Virgina Beach first thing Saturday morning so I am hoping it's not "significant". Although it would be cool to watch it snow on the beach once we got there...I'd rather not drive in it for four hours to get there!

Why are we limited to clearing out visitors? I've got some kids I don't want to be trapped with for 4 days!

The in-house meteorologist over at Progress Energy is calling for potentially 6-12" of mixed precip.

This will not be slushy mess, this will be a true icey mess. Temps will be in the mid 20s every drop of rain will freeze. If its snow you better hope it is.
