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.
Major storms and a failed reservation system earlier this year caused on-time flight arrivals to drop significantly at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport.
Federal statistics and airline data show Charlotte-Douglas ranked 27th out of 32 major airports for on-time arrivals during the first four months of the year.
In 2004, 83 percent of flights to Charlotte arrived on time, the nation's second-best rate. This year, it's 66 percent.
That's barely above notoriously slow O'-Hare International in Chicago and the three major airports serving New York City.
Aviation consultant Mike Boyd says Charlotte's ranking was directly related to this year's weather delays and the U-S Airways reservations glitch.
He says the ranking likely would be different if it was done another year.
