    Raleigh, NC: Storm Strikes as Arctic Air Settles in

    By By Alex Sosnowski, senior meteorologist.

    A winter storm will affect the Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill areas of North Carolina with snow into early Wednesday.

    Enough snow will fall and will cause disruptions to daily activities and travel through midweek, even though the storm will head out to sea on Wednesday.

    The storm will hit the I-95 corridor of the Carolinas the hardest but will extend throughout I-40 and I-85 in North Carolina.

    Temperatures will dip into the teens early Wednesday morning and will not reach the freezing mark Wednesday.

    There is some good news for folks who dislike the cold, wintry weather.

    Snow and ice patches will melt late in the week as high temperatures trend upward into the 50s.

    However, motorists and pedestrians are advised to be cautious as areas made wet during the day may turn icy at night.
