“We expect rain (Saturday) afternoon, transitioning into snow during the evening,” he said. “There will be a rain/snow mix switching to all snow about 8 p.m. or 9 p.m.

Gordy Ure, Department of Transportation maintenance engineer for Craven and Pamlico counties, said he is monitoring the forecast and on Friday it looked like a significant rain event coming in before the snow Saturday night.

Pretreating the roads with brine is not a good option until the rain changes to a wintry mix, he said.

Lonka said it would be a quick and brief cool down after the snow stops. Sunday temperatures are expected to be in the upper 30s, but it will be windy and feel much colder, he said.

Monday temperatures will rise into the lower 50s and Tuesday temperatures should climb into the low or mid 60s, above normal for this time of year, Lonka said.
