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.
A large dome of Arctic air will continue to settle across eastern Carolina through Wednesday. Overnight lows will dip into the upper teens well inland and middle 20s on the beaches. Skies will remain mostly clear and winds will diminish overnight. The cold weather will linger into the weekend. A storm system will move eastward and will spread some rain into the area on Friday. It may be cold enough across our northern counties to produce a mixture of rain and snow at times. Clearing skies and cold weather will return for the weekend.
