Dupiln, Greene, Lenoir, Martin and Pitt counties will be under a freezing rain advisory from 4am to 1pm on Monday. Beaufort, Craven, Jones and Washington counties will be under the advisory from 4am to 10am.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says he's getting closer to a deal with Republican leader Mitch McConnell that would increase the nation's borrowing authority and end the 2-week-old government shutdown.
Reid made the comments to reporters on Monday after emerging from a meeting with McConnell that lasted just over a half hour.
Reid said they would continue to work on it and hoped to have something to present to President Barack Obama at a White House meeting Monday afternoon.
