A winter weather advisory is in effect until 7am on Saturday for Beaufort, Mainland Hyde, Martin, Outer Banks Dare, Tyrrell, Washington and western Dare County. The threats are black ice and slick roadways.
With snow in our immediate future sometime Sunday night, are many local areas ready to handle the white stuff if it starts falling?
WITN went out to see if local law enforcement agencies were getting prepared, and we found out they were. Officers with the Greenville Police Department say its their job to be on call, so while no extra officers have been put on the schedule Sunday night, they can be called up if the situation demands it. Automobile crashes escalate when there is snow on the roadways so everyone is urged to be extra careful while driving, if the snow does start to fall.
