RALEIGH – The National Weather Service is keeping an eye on a storm system that could bring more frozen precipitation to the Triangle area at the end of this week.

“It looks like we may see a brief period of some freezing rain and sleet at the onset of it,” NWS forecaster Scott Sharp says. “It (should) happen after midnight or so. (There) may be a little bit of a period of freezing rain early Friday morning before it changes to all rain by mid- to late-morning.”

Of course the greatest concern will be for commuters Friday morning.

Sharp says the system is still a ways off with time for the forecast to change. But as of now, it looks like another Friday could be affected by cold temperatures and potentially harmful weather. The good news is that is isn’t expected to last long.

“We are monitoring a storm system out in the southern Rockies that will be approaching the southeast US late Thursday into Thursday night and Friday,” Sharp says. “It looks like the precip (will begin) during the overnight hours Thursday into Friday morning.”
