4pm Update — Coastal Storm Impacts — Beaufort Co.

Press Release:

    Here is our latest (and final) briefing on the wintry coastal storm. The trend today was towards a snowier solution, so Winter Weather Advisories have been expanded south and east. The heaviest snow (with greatest impacts) will fall along and north of US 264, where 2-3" with locally higher amounts are possible. Further south and east a slushy coating to an inch is expected though impacts are expected to remain minimal.

    Strong winds and minor coastal flooding are also still expected for areas along the Outer Banks and Down East Carteret County.

    As always please call the office at 252 223 5737 ext. 6 if you have any questions.
