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 Thanksgiving officially behind us the Christmas spirit is up and running.
Nowhere is that seen more than at the shopping malls and Christmas tree lots. Frasier Firs, wreaths, and garland are flying off lots, but officials say this isn't even the biggest weekend for Christmas tree sales. They expect even more sales next weekend, something the high gas prices may surprisingly help because they say people are spending more money at home.
Christmas tree officials say that the colder weather from last week has helped get people in the mood for the holiday.
