A winter weather advisory has been issued for all of eastern Carolina except Carteret, Onslow, and Duplin counties from 6pm Thursday through 4am Friday. Light freezing rain and sleet will be possible.
Officials say a man rescued from the waters off Nags Head last week has died.
Stephen L. Tacket, 58-years-old of Hazard, Kentucky was pulled from the water Wednesday by a Nags Head Ocean Rescue life guard, where he was unconscious and not breathing.
Tacket was transported to the Outer Banks hospital where he later died.
