A winter storm will deliver snow & ice to the Carolinas

Another winter storm will impact the Carolinas Friday into Saturday. The storm will deliver a round of snow and freezing rain even to coastal parts of the area. Some of the accumulations could be significant. Because of the expected impacts on travel and electricity, a Winter Storm Watch (blue) has been issued for much of the Carolinas. This will likely be upgraded to a Winter Storm Warning and Ice Storm Warning tomorrow. Watch the latest video forecast on the winter storm.

Eastern and Coastal parts of the Carolinas could see 0.25 to 0.50 inches of freezing rain with central Coastal parts of North Carolina receiving up to 0.75 inches of freezing rain. Snow is also possible with the best snow accumulations expected in eastern North Carolina where several inches may fall.
