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.
With Tropical Storm Gabrielle predicted to hit Coastal North Carolina sometime Sunday morning, it was surprising to find so many people along the Crystal Coast opting to soak up the sun instead of preparing for the possible storm.
But, even with people enjoying the sun and sand today, the threat of Gabrielle was not far from their minds.
Some say they will pack up early to beat the heavy rains
