When the sun comes up this week, Raleigh is expected to see temperatures in the low 70s.
But the temperature may get much colder, too.
That’s because the forecast is predicting a heavy snowstorm.
That means the chance of getting a little snowfall, which can be devastating to homes and businesses, is higher than the normal amount.
It could be even worse.
A lot of people are in the region to work.
“We’re going to see a lot of snow,” said Chris Sager, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Raleigh.
“We’re talking about the possibility of 3 feet or more of snow.”
In a five-day forecast, it will have at least 3 feet of snow.
“It’s a big snow storm,” said Mike Treadwell, a spokesman for the National Hurricane Center.
“That’s what it’s going to be like,” said Eric Stromberg, a spokesperson for the North Carolina Department of Transportation.
The storm is forecast to move across the Carolinas on Wednesday, bringing with it heavy rain and wind gusts as high as 50 mph.
It’s expected to make landfall in Raleigh, and it could create dangerous power outages and flooding, as well as the possibility for power outage.
On Thursday, the storm could be heading for the Carolina coast.
“It’s not going to stay there for a while, but we’ll see how it develops,” Treadway said.
And that’s not all.
A storm surge watch for much of the North Carolinas has been issued, warning that high tides could surge as high up as six feet.
A storm surge warning was also issued for the Gulf Coast on Thursday.
The threat of a major storm surge in the Carolines has also been increased to a Category 4 storm.
The highest category storm could bring up to two feet of water to some parts of the Carolineas coast.
The hurricane warning is in place until Thursday morning, and the National Guard is working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency to prepare the region for the storm.
