Eastern Carolina Bundles Up Thanks To Cold Blast

Residents across Eastern Carolina are bundling up today, as temperatures struggle to make it to the upper 30s.

Gusty winds are combining with the chilly temperatures to drop wind chills into the teens in some places.

It's been almost a year since high temperatures failed to get above 37°, that was on February 10th.

People who have to work outside dressed in multiple layers, wearing gloves and toboggans to keep them warm. A city work crew in New Bern says there are just some things you can't do when it gets this cold, like pouring concrete.

Tonight low temperatures are expected to dip down into the upper teens. WITN Meteorologist Phillip Williams says seasonable temperatures will return by Thursday, while highs will be above average Friday and Saturday.

A strong cold front is blasting through eastern North Carolina. Gusty winds will combine with dropping temperatures to send wind chills into the teens by early Tuesday morning. Overnight lows will dip into the upper 20s to lower 30s in most locations.

A few snow flurries were reported overnight in Lenoir and Duplin Counties. The wind is blowing 10-20 mph near the coast but gusting higher across the area.

Highs will struggle into the middle to upper 30s with wind chills holding in the upper 20s. We should see a slow warming trend after a frigid night on Tuesday. We should see dry weather continue through the end of the week.
