Weather Authority Forecast


Some snow and sleet likely on Friday.......

A winter storm warning has been issued for Beaufort, Hyde, Martin, Washington, Tyrrell and Dare counties starting at 7:00 am Friday. A winter weather advisory has been issued for the remainder of the area starting at the same time. One to 3 inches of snow is expected in the warning counties with lesser amounts elsewhere. The main time for snow and sleet will be 10:00 am inland then end around 6:00 pm on the Outer Banks.

A weak area of low pressure is expected to develop off the North Carolina coast and may bring wintry precipitation to the area on Friday. Areas along highway 264 and north have the best chances for snow. A mixture of snow and sleet, with mainly rain along the Crystal Coast can be expected. The ground, however, is quite cold and even a little accumulation could make for some slick roads on Friday. We'll be watching the system very closely.

After a very cold, but sunny weekend, a stronger storm developing across the Gulf Coast will bring a better chance of precipitation late Monday into Tuesday. Temperatures should rebound into the 40s early next week. Highs could reach 60 degrees by the middle of next week.


Thursday Night: Clear early then increasing clouds late and cold. Lows in the middle 20s, with light winds.

Friday: Clouds building with a wintry mix moving in late in the morning. Light snow and sleet will be possible inland with a mixture of rain, sleet and some snow along the Crystal Coast. Highs will be in the lower to middle 30s with a northeast wind at 4 to 8 mph. Precipitation chance: 50%.


Winds will blow from the north at 10 to 15 knots Friday becoming northwest at 15 to 25 knots on Saturday. Swells will run from 4 to 7 feet offshore and 2 to 3 feet on the Albemarle and Pamlico Sounds.
