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.
It defies the laws of time... a minute with 61 seconds, but that's just what's going to happen Saturday night.
Scientists will delay the start of 2006 with the a leap second. However, this isn't something new. They had a leap second seven years ago as a way to make up for changes in our planet's rotation. We will get our extra second at the stroke of midnight, so use it well. Give someone a kiss, say a silent prayer, or tell someone you love them.
