Good Afternoon Everyone,

    Please see below and attached for the latest update from the National Weather Service (NWS) pertaining to this weekend's winter weather threat. No major changes were made to the forecast for Beaufort County. However, forecast models are still not in agreement as to specifics, so timing and snow accumulations could continue to change. We hope to provide a detailed forecast with tomorrow's update.

    Beaufort County Forecast

    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).

    *This system does not appear to present the significant ice threat that was accompanied with last weekend's storm.*

    We encourage everyone to continue to monitor local media outlets for more information.

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