News Release:

Good Morning Everyone,

    Please see below and attached for the latest update from the National Weather Service (NWS).

    Generally speaking, rain chances will begin to increase after 1pm Friday, with rain likely after 7pm. A transition to snow is expected after 10 pm for most areas of the Beaufort County, and continue through noon Saturday. Beaufort County is currently forecasted to receive a varying amount of snowfall ranging from a dusting in southeastern areas (Blounts Creek, Edward, Aurora) to between 2 and 3 inches in the northwest (Washington, Old Ford, Pinetown). However, forecast models are still not in agreement as to specifics, so timing and snow accumulations could change. We hope to provide a detailed forecast within the next 12 to 24 hours.
