A winter storm warning is in effect today for Beaufort, Dare, mainland Hyde, Martin, Tyrrell and Washington counties. A winter storm advisory is in effect today for the rest of Eastern Carolina. The threats are snow, sleet and freezing rain.
Temperatures by Thursday AM are likely to drop to near the freezing mark for areas away from the coast.
When combined with lots of standing water from Wednesday's rainfall, some spotty areas of black ice are possible. The ice is not likely to be widespread.
The most likely locations for black ice would be on bridges and overpasses.
Any ice will quickly melt after sunrise.
