The Winter Storm Watch goes into effect Monday evening and is in effect through Tuesday evening, which means the morning commute Tuesday could be hard.

The weather will start off as rain early Monday - from a third to a full inch of rainfall across central North Carolina.

A winter storm watch is in effect for most of New England, parts of NY and Virginia.

Another snowfall is set to hit the county Monday afternoon but forecasters at the National Weather Service are having trouble getting a bead on whether that snowfall will be 1 inch or 6 inches. Accumulations of 2 to 4 inches are expected between the Kentucky Parkways with localized higher amounts possible.

South of I-85, there's an expanded possibility for a trace of snow and sleet accumulation, up to a patchy dusting. "If we do have that occur it will probably be a dusting at best". You can also post your report to National Weather Service Greenville Spartanburg Facebook or tweet your report using hashtag nwsgsp. Accumulation should be mostly on grassy or elevated areas, since the ground is still warm enough to promote melting.

Plan on hard travel conditions, including during the morning commute on Monday.

Patchy black ice is possible Tuesday as temperatures fall to or slightly below freezing by the morning. We'll push toward 60 by late week, with a chance of rain by the weekend.

A system causing severe weather Sunday along the Gulf Coast is expected to become a nor'easter and threaten the Northeastern U.S. on Monday night into Tuesday.

On Friday and Thursday, however, Dixon said the temperature should rise to highs in the 40s with partly sunny skies.

Snow will appear as far south as Connecticut, Rhode Island and MA, although Cape Cod may see more rain than snow.
