Celebration of Angels event canceled

Rowan residents could see some snowflakes this weekend ó and some below-freezing nighttime temperatures ó but don’t expect to see much of the white stuff stay on the ground, weather forecasters say.
Still, Downtown Salisbury Inc.’s Celebration of Angels event, scheduled for this morning has been canceled due to the forecast. And folks heading out to other events, including parades in Kannapolis and Cleveland, should bundle up and take umbrellas.
According to the National Weather Service, there’s an 80 percent chance of precipitation today, with rain likely before 4 p.m. ó up to a half inch could fall ó and high temperatures reaching only into the lower 40s.
Tonight, local residents could see rain mixed with snow before 8 p.m. and there’s a slight chance of snow between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m., the Weather Service says. The low will be around 28 degrees.
Sunshine is expected to return Sunday with a high near 48. A slight chance for snow returns Monday morning until 9 a.m., with the possibility of rain after that. The high will be around 52.
Though the National Weather Service doesn’t foresee much chance of snow covering local roads, the N.C. Department of Transportation is gearing up its plows and salt brine spreaders, just in case.
“Our guys have prepared snow removal equipment and salt supplies and reviewed routes we might be plowing,” Chris Corriher, district engineer for Davidson and Rowan counties, said in a press release. “We are ready if winter weather hits.”
