Area might see some snow this weekend

Could the coast see snow before the first day of winter?

The National Weather Service in Wilmington says a few snow flakes are possible Saturday night or Sunday morning.

Temperatures in the low 30s are expected Saturday night, and the combination of a low pressure system makes ideal conditions for snow or an icy mixture, the weather service said.

But while Saturday night might be cold enough to support an icy mixture or snow, the somewhat warm ground likely would prevent any accumulation, according to the weather service.

The remainder of the weekend also will be chilly, with highs in the mid-40s on Sunday and a 50 percent chance of rain. Temperatures are expected to dip into the upper 20s that night, but no wet weather is expected.
