will stay dry. everybody dry now. temperatures are in the 40s with it all ready slipping to 37 where it's still clear in roxboro, 37 in south hill virginia. and as we pull out. the low pressure system is sitting right about there. and it's going to continue to move. and then it all depends on the path. if it follows the projected path and goes right here, the edge of that precipitation field will be any where southeast of raleigh. obviously if it moves further, everybody will stay dry. this is the way it looks now. we'll see a little rain possibly mixed with snow southeast of the triangle. nothing this evening, just increasing clouds into the 30s. and then over night, there could be a flake or a little bit of rain especially southeast. the other thing to note is where there will be precipitation, all these temperatures will stay above freezing. we'll time out what to expect and who will get what tomorrow and give you the rest of the week's forecast and it's going to be a cold one. stick around for that.

i'm steve handelsman, nbc news, manchester new hampshire. it's been named one of the 20 best events many the southeast. today people lined the streets of durham for the 14th annual north carolina mlk black history month parade. the parade is a way to give thanks to dr. martin luther king jr. and recognize the achievements of other great african americans. >> durham has a lot of historic history as well as i'm an employee of the university. i want to bring my family out. it's a day of peace, a day of out. >> the theme of the parade was give us ballots. a way to shine light on voting rights for african americans. the signs of summer maybe months away but it's never too early to think about it. hundreds came out for a job fair hosted by durham parks and recreation. it was held at the holton career and resource center. public works positions are available.
student who worked at a city camp last year and is hoping to get a job this summer. >> i think it's a great event. it informs you about different areas that you probably would have not known existed before. and i think it's a great opportunity to meet people you could be working with. and people that could be interviewing you. >> some jobs will open as early as next month. we linked you to job listings on wncn.com. >> not quite a nice day to be thinking about life guarding or pools today. but it was a nice day for february, right? >> not bad. tomorrow's not going to be the nicest super bowl sunday. we have precipitation in the forecast in areas. i want you to see this, the tower cam looks south. you're looking from the north to the south. there's the city of raleigh. you see the clouds on the southern horizon. and that's key. that's where the system is coming from. some areas will stay dry. but the further south you go, the better chance you have rain. there's no rain now. none expected this evening. if you're heading out. grab a coat.
especially where the skies are clear. 30s from roxboro, roanoke rapids, 42 in raleigh and durham, 45 in fayetteville. and 45 in goldsboro. nothing on the radar until you get to the south. there's that low pressure system developing off the coast of jacksonville and florida. and it's going to move to the northeast as we showed you earlier in the news cast. it just depends on how far away it's going to be from us. but it'll throw precipitation in areas southeast of the triangle. that looks somewhat likely. here's what you need to know. sunday, precipitation, it's mainly in the morning. it doesn't mean we won't see some in the afternoon, especially east of i-95. but the best chances are southeast of the triangle. if you're watching roxboro to the north and west, you might stay dry all day. rain is possible. but it may mix or change to snow. here's, yeah, that's a possibility, but the key here is it's going to be rain right along the coast. this is the area that could see the precipitation, i'm going to triangle southward. if you're watching southern
gold borrow, smithfield, rocky mount, you have the best chance to see rain that could be mixed with snow in a little bit. and areas north and south, i don't have precipitation there because it's a slight risk some of that could sneak your way. i won't rule it out but i want to give you a feel of the lay of the land. if it goes further out to sea, you shove this all down, if it comes closer, everybody sees a chance of rain or snow. but the key to that too is all the surface temperatures will stay above freezing. so little or no accumulation might be confined to grass. a little excitement tomorrow morning but that's about it. we have 30s tonight. i'll put a chance of rain or snow mix in there after 3:00 tonight. especially into tomorrow morning. the key here is you see 30% chance. by the afternoon it should dry out. it'll stay mostly cloudy. but here's what's different. we're kind of flip-flopped. durham is further north. raleigh, a degree cooler with more clouds, 46, and where the
fayetteville, and you have the best chance of seeing that precipitation, which could be mixed in with a little bit -- nothing at midnight. with a little bit of that mixed precipitation. you see that trying to show up there in the pink. and what will happen as we head toward lunch time in the afternoon hours, there's that low. it'll move away. and then by 6:00, see how clear it's going to be in charlotte and boone, all those clear skies will roll in. and we'll start monday dry. but then this cold front comes our way. and we're going to see some showers on monday evening. rain showers. and then behind the front, dry air comes in. but it could squeeze out an the snow showers will stay in the mountains on tuesday. but we could see that. too. tomorrow, in the sand hills, rain, maybe some snow, winds out of the north and northeast 8 to 12. temperatures in the low to mid 40s. the best chance of precipitation, clinton, goldsboro, wilson, you can see rain mixed with snow. mainly dry north of i-85. just a mostly cloudy day. kind of on the edge in the triangle.
that monday, 40% is for the rain showers late in the day. and then tuesday, just maybe an isolated shower, look how cold it's going to be. and then thursday is sunny and 38. it's going to be 40 -- 40 on thursday. 38 on wednesday. i decided to put lincoln's birthday up there for you to show you that february is progressing quickly. 48 on friday. and then another system could give us something on saturday. 40 degrees. american heart association, great cause. $50. $100. 50 from al and kelly and 50 from us. the high was 48. we forecasted 50. >> no snow sticking now. >> no. it'll be exciting. >> it could be pretty. >> the atmosphere above is cold. but at the ground, it should melt. >> news cast the kind of snow we like. stay with us. still to come, nc state is getting another chance at duke. this time in durham.

in durham today, duke and nc state squared off for the second time this year. a few weeks ago devils pulled away for an 88-78 win. today as todd gibson shows us, things would go differently in the beginning but much of the same in the end. >> after a one-game hiatus due to illness, coach k returns with the blessing of his team. >> i asked him, i said is it all right to be here? and they said yeah. and i said well that's smart of you because i still control playing time. >> krzyzewski giving luke kinard. he hit three three's in the first half on his way to a 26 point outing. grayson allen would top that. he had had a game high 28 points. duke appeared to pull away in the second half. up by 13. then the pack makes a run. a double double, 16 points, and
cat explodes for 17 of his team high 26 after the break. >> every time we got a lead, they'd hit a big shot and get back into the game. i know nc state is a dangerous team. they have dangerous scorers. and you know, they're really totoh. >> but duke was tough as well down the stretch taking the pack's best punch and not flinching the devils able to stave off nc states outstanding second half. >> we're getting closer and closer closing out these games and turning them into -- we have a lot of work to do. >> they fall to 2 and 9 after their loss to the devils. todd gibson, wncn sports. stay with us. we'll be right back with another look at your forecast.
