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.
A voluntary evacuation goes in effect Tuesday in North Topsail Beach, Pender County. Parts of the beach are extremely vulnerable because protection from the ocean is so minimal. Already Monday, several homes along the beach were dealing with underwash from the rough surf.
