A winter weather advisory has been issued for all of eastern Carolina except Carteret, Onslow, and Duplin counties from 6pm Thursday through 4am Friday. Light freezing rain and sleet will be possible.
Nearly 1,800 North Carolina lottery players kept it simple when choosing their numbers and their 10,000-to-1 shot is paying off.
The winning numbers of Wednesday night's Carolina Pick 4 drawing were 3-3-3-3. The drawing produced 1,793 winning tickets that matched all four numbers. The winners divide $6.6 million.
The game's top prize of $5,000 will go to 848 players across the state who bought a $1 ticket. Those who played a ticket of 50-cents get a $2,500 prize.
Winners can't claim their prizes until Monday because state lottery offices are closed for the Thanksgiving holiday.
