NORTH CAROLINA -- A cold front to our west will sweep across the state Saturday night and Sunday bringing with scattered showers and a few thunderstorms. 

Ahead of the front look for increasing clouds and a chance for a few spotty showers.

Showers and thunderstorms will increase across central and eastern North Carolina as we head into Saturday night.

As the front passes by, an area of low pressure will develop along the front and as the front and low pressure move off-shore the low will quickly intensify.

This will keep the chance of scattered showers in the forecast for much of Sunday. 

Cooler air will move into central North Carolina by Sunday afternoon and we will see temperatures drop after lunch time.  

This low pressure system will really wind up and is forecast to become a major storm as it heads up the eastern seaboard.

In the North Carolina Mountains, cold air moving in behind the front may be enough to produce a few snow showers on Sunday, but little, if any, accumulation is expected.
