    Ok I figure here in JOCO less then an inch. But Wake, Durham, Orange county schools will all be closed till at least Wednesday. Even if they are doing remote learning that will even be called off. And for JOCO classed cancelled Monday and Tuesday. That's my bet

    Clayton, 40/42, Northern JoCo - Probably about an inch of actual snowfall, but it will quickly be washed away by rain. At least that is what the most current model is showing.
    Raleigh and northwest may actually get a couple inches, but most will probably wash away in the afternoon evening as well

    yeah but watch how channels like ABC11 will pre-empt everything and do reports from around the entire area. From Roxboro all the way to Fayetteville

    ABC11 is showing how the DOT is brining the roads. And this will be another winter that Polenta road does not get brined. in the 21+ years that i have lived here and seen explosive growth. I have never seen that road brined .

    I wouldn't worry too much here, Sunday morning early will be the only time there may be any slick roads in our area. By lunch time it will already be above freezing, by the mid afternoon it will be in the 40s.

    It doesn't get below freezing again until Monday night, at which point this will all be fairly gone and dry.

    Oh i'm not worried for where we are. It's just funny how the news makes it like its some huge storm. Wish they had given that much thought when we had the storm back in 2000. I remember Wral taughting their Dopler (now dual dopler) saying we were only going to see 3-4" of snow and got more then 20" of snow.

    But I do know that ever since I move out to South Plantation the DOT has NEVER brined or plowed Polenta Road. And on that one curve just before the high school it always gets icy. And it takes longer to melt then other areas (due to being shaded by the trees). You always see one or more cars off in the ditch due to the fact people do not slow down through that section.

    Sorry just kind of venting :)

    I did run out to Food Lion, Yes to get Milk and Bread. But i noticed that both Raleigh/Mclemore had been brined as well as Cleveland Road. Bit the side roads between Cleveland and Polenta were not and Polenta was not either. Can anyone tell me Why they still do not include Polenta in the brining? Or can you point me to the NC DOT dept I can contact for the future. Thanks
