The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for much of the state today.

Raleigh Forecaster Scott Sharp says highs aren't likely to rise above the mid-20s today, and wind chill could make it feel like the teens.

Snow will start to fall this afternoon. Sharp says up to three inches could fall in the West, and up to six inches of snow is possible near I-95. The coast could see up to eight inches.

“Once the snow does fall, it'll probably stick on the ground for a few days, it looks like. Tomorrow, our high temperatures will only be up near freezing, so there will be some melting, but not too much going on.”

Sharp says snow will make driving treacherous tonight and tomorrow morning.
