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.
People at high risk for heat related illnesses in these extreme temperatures are those with diabetes. Experts say if you have diabetes, you need to take extra precautions during the hot weather. That's because diabetes can raise a person's core body temperature more so than non-diabetics. Not drinking enough water can cause a sudden rise in your blood sugar, too.
