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 small portion of Highway 33 in Beaufort County is set to close on Monday which will cause traffic to be re-routed for the next few weeks. The closure will stretch just beyond the Family Dollar store in Chocowinity to just beyond the Food Pride store. The actual work involves removing old concrete box culverts and replacing them with new pipes. Later on in the year the same stretch of road will also be widened.
