Dupiln, Greene, Lenoir, Martin and Pitt counties will be under a freezing rain advisory from 4 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Monday. Beaufort, Craven, Jones and Washington counties will be under the advisory from 4 a.m. to 10 a.m.
Heat warnings and red flag warnings issued earlier in the week in California are no longer in effect. Gusty winds that were prevalent early in the week have calmed down considerably. Temperatures over the weekend were expected to hover in the 60s along the coast while mid-to-upper 90s will occur farther inland. Still that is a far cry from the 110° and higher temperatures reported the first half of the week. Temperatures are expected to remain near normal for the next week and that should help firefighters deal with the raging wildfires. The fires will continue to create poor air quality conditions across the San Francisco Bay area this weekend.
