    Our office continues to monitor the development of a strong cold front that has the potential to bring freezing rain, sleet and possibly snow to our area Thursday night, Friday and early Saturday morning. While forecast confidence continues to grow, it is too early to accurately determine specific impacts for Beaufort County. However, we anticipate details will emerge quickly over the next 12 to 24 hrs, and encourage everyone to continue to monitor local media outlets for updates.

    The latest update from the National Weather Service can be found in the email below and attached briefing. We will continue to pass along information as we receive it.

    As always, thanks for what you do to keep Beaufort County informed, prepared and safe.

Good Morning,

    We are gaining more confidence on a potential significant winter storm late this week.

    When: Late Thursday night through Friday Night.

    Where: Much of Eastern NC away from the immediate coastal areas.

    What: Significant freezing rain (icing) is possible, along with sleet and some snow.

    What we do not know: Specific ice/sleet/snow amounts, and exact locations and type of winter precipitation.

    There is the potential for severe icing across portions of Eastern NC. However, how deep and far north and west a developing warm layer progresses above the surface will dictate whether the wintry precipitation is freezing rain or sleet. Accumulating snow is a possibility as well, but better chances of snow appear to be just north and northwest of Eastern NC at this time.

    Again, there are a lot of moving parts in forecasting winter precipitation type, amounts, and exact locations when the storm system is still several days away, therefore the attached 'best estimate' map (attached), is subject to change.

    As always, please call our office if you have any questions (252-223-5737 ext. 6).

    Regards,
