A winter weather advisory has been issued for all of eastern Carolina except Carteret, Onslow, and Duplin counties through 4am Friday. Rain and light sleet continues to fall through the area. Temperatures are still about freezing.
High pressure over the Middle Atlantic States will give eastern Carolina lots of sunshine with highs in the middle to upper 50s. Overnight lows both Friday and Saturday mornings will hover near the freezing mark. A strong warming trend will begin on Saturday along with a continuation of mostly sunny skies. The next chance for showers will come on Sunday as a cold front approaches the area.
