With the threat of freezing rain and sleet in the forecast, local DOT offices say they're preparing to treat the roads once again.
Officials at the Pitt County DOT office described this winter event as a "watch and wait game." Because the weather event will start with rain, putting brine down on the roads will be ineffective; it will all be washed away.
Officials say they are preparing by getting rock salt ready to spread once the precipitation does start.
Slick roads and black ice are possible with this weather event.
