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.
Its less than a week until Valentines Day, one of the biggest floral days of the year.
For all the romantics and flower service businesses, its definitely crunch time. Cox Floral Services in Greenville told us they've already hired between 10 to 15 drivers for deliveries on Monday and Tuesday, and an additional 7 to 10 flower designers to process everyone's request. They've even rented out additional space to put their finished arrangements just waiting to be delivered. They have the manpower but will they have enough flowers? They hope so, because they'll be accepting a shipment of flowers everyday until the 14th, and sometimes, two shipments.
Some floral businesses have actually sold out of flowers before on Valentines Day.
