From Earlier Today
A Winter Storm Warning will be in effect from noon Wednesday through 9 a.m. Thursday for all counties in eastern Carolina.

A strong low pressure system moving up the coast will result in wintry precipitation for a large portion of the area. Snowfall totals of 2 to 4+ inches are possible for most inland areas while coastal areas will likely see totals of .5"-2".

The low will move northeast of the area Thursday morning, leaving us with another round of arctic air and gusty winds. Wind chills will again drop down into the single digits overnight. Very little snow melt is anticipated as temperatures stay below freezing until midday Sunday.

Timing
Precipitation will start as early as sunset on Wednesday (5pm)

Start: 5 p.m. Wed.
End: 7 a.m. Thu.

Snowfall Accumulations
.5"-2": Coastal Onslow, Carteret, Southern Craven, Pamlico, Hyde, Dare
2"- 4" with isolated higher totals: Duplin, Lenoir, Greene, Northern Onslow, Jones, Northern Craven, Beaufort, Pitt, Washington, Tyrrell, Bertie, Martin
