A winter weather advisory is in effect until 7am on Saturday for Beaufort, Mainland Hyde, Martin, Outer Banks Dare, Tyrrell, Washington and western Dare County. The threats are black ice and slick roadways.
Unseasonably warm weather surged from the Southern and Central Plains to the Southern and Middle Atlantic Coast on March 12 and 13, 1990. Many locations had afternoon highs in the 70s and 80s and twenty-six cities had record highs on March 12. Baltimore, Maryland reached 95 degrees which smashed the old record of 76 by 19 degrees. Other record highs included 89 degrees at Washington D.C. and 90 degrees at Raleigh. At the WITN Weather Station the temperature reached 85 degrees on March 12 and 88 degrees on March 13. I don't expect we'll see temperatures that high this week.
