Make it three weekends in a row.

Two weeks after the last storm, North Carolina and Virginia were again in the path of a winter storm.

13News Weather Lab meteorologist Julie Wilcox said it is remarkable to have snow in the forecast in this area three weekends in a row.

"We've certainly had bigger snows overall, but the frequency of these storms is very unusual.  Saturday we've seen snow showers moving through.  Up to an inch is possible Southside, with more accumulation over northeastern North Carolina.  It is also going to be breezy and cold with highs just in the mid 30s," said Wilcox.

She adds that the area won't have to wait long for its next chance for winter weather, as. another storm rolls in on Monday. 

"The computer models have been back and forth on this one, but right now it looks like primarily a rain event during the day.  But it gets cold enough Monday night into Tuesday that we may once again be dealing with a mix of precipitation or snow."

Saturday's snow came after an area of low pressure moved off the Florida coast and strengthened off the South Carolina coast Friday night.
