Rare Late March SNOW for Raleigh, NC?

A great distraction caused by the VCU win over Kansas and the UNC loss to KY almost caused me to miss something important going on in the weather!

Instability associated with a wave of low pressure is taking a track that could bring a rare late March snow to Central NC.   Cold air is in place and all that is needed is convection strong enough to precipitate enough to form snow.  The activity over southern TN and N AL needs to organize and maintain strength and track overnight to provide a snow event that will surprise anyone not reading this column.
The circled activity has surprise snowfall potential tomorrow morning.

No significant accumulation is expected.
