For the second night in a row, temperatures fell into the lower 20s and even upper teens across inland locations across eastern North Carolina. The cold weather has been fairly intense for the latter part of February but not completely unusual. I've seen some very intense weather conditions, especially during the first week of March. I remember well the first two days of March in 1980 when much of our area got between 1 and 2 feet of snow with drifts to 6 feet or higher. I don't expect anything like that this year but a shot of cold air will arrive by Sunday and Monday. A major storm system will impact the East Coast on Monday but odds favor most of the wintry weather staying to our north. Regardless, we'll see overnight temperatures dive into the 20s by early next week. The good news is that spring is only a few weeks away.
