We've been receiving calls from folks asking what they can expect weather-wise in our area over the next several days.

As of this morning (Thurs, Jan 5 - next update at 4pm), the National Weather Service in Wilmington offers this general forecast for our area: 
  • After a start as rain late Friday afternoon/evening a transition to a wintry mix is expected early Saturday morning for inland areas, and later in the day along the coast, potentially causing travel hazards throughout the day.
  • Highest snowfall accumulations are expected farther inland given the track of the low and the later arrival of arctic air.
  • Very cold low temperatures are expected early Sunday morning with even colder temperatures early Monday morning with a strong arctic air-mass building into the Carolinas.

The City will notify the news media of any closings and/or late openings, and we will post the same information on our website, Facebook, Twitter, and send to our Email News Groups.

Public Works Street Crews are scheduled to come in on Saturday to address potential road condition issues.

Public safety is positioning sign boards near overpasses to warn motorists should icy conditions occur. All Public Safety employees have been notified of the weather potential.

The City continues to monitor the weather system. If warranted, additional resources will be brought in.
