A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for counties along and north of Highway 264, including Greene, Pitt, Beaufort and Hyde counties from midnight through 2 p.m. Saturday.

The cold air will stick with us through most of the weekend. There will be some melting of the snow by Saturday afternoon, however temperatures will plummet following sunset Saturday night. Overnight lows will fall to the upper teens by sunrise Sunday. These frigid temperatures will lead any melt water refreezing, creating slick spots on roads early Sunday morning. We’ll see enough melt through Sunday to limit the ice potential Monday morning to shady areas.

A warming trend that will see temps reach the mid to upper 40s Monday will eventually max out in the upper 60s by Thursday. Our next round of rain will arrive as our temperatures reach their peak, with cooler weather returning for next weekend.

Friday Night

Light rain changing to light snow after midnight. Low 30. Wind: NNE 10-20. Precipitation chance: 80%.

Saturday

AM light snow ending by midday. Rain/snow along the Crystal Coast. High 37. Wind: NW 15-25. Snow chance: 60%.

Sunday

Icy morning thaws out under a sunny sky. High 41. Wind: NW 5-10.
