The snow is receding, slippery roads and cold temperatures are here to stay
RALEIGH, NC (WNCN) – The snow has ended for central North Carolina, but most areas are now left with several inches of snow, ice and slippery roads across the region. A winter wonderland and a reminder to stay home, just in time for the weekend.
All winter weather alerts have been allowed to expire for our region. And even if we are done with the winter precipitation, we are not done with the cold.
As most were waking up on Saturday, it’s quite freezing with temperatures ranging from teens to mid-twenties. Factor in the winds and it looks more like teens, and even single digits.
Overnight, Clinton saw the most snowfall, racking up 3.4 inches. The city was followed by Raleigh with 3.1, Goldsboro with 3.0, Lillington with 2.8 and Carrboro International Airport and Raleigh-Durham tied with 2.3 inches.
Today will be a good day to stay home and play in the snow as the roads will continue to be slippery and slippery especially for the first part of the day. If you must go out on the roads, be careful.
As of 7 a.m., only 20% of Interstate 95 and 10% of I-140 had been cleared, the state’s primary modes of travel, according to Andrew Barksdale, public relations manager for the Carolina Department of Transportation. North.
However, we will have sunshine for Saturday which should help with some improvement on the roads.
If you’re playing outside, bundle up and have extra layers as the highs should only hit the mid-30s. However, the winds will make it feel much cooler. The lows will fall in the teens on Sunday morning.
Be careful if you go out on Sunday mornings as well, as black ice and refreezing will be a problem. Some melting will occur Sunday afternoon with sunshine and highs in the lower 40s. We will stay in the 40s for Monday. A determination of road conditions will be made later in the weekend by the CBS 17 Storm team.
Currently, there are no Alert Days scheduled for Saturday, Sunday or Monday by CBS 17. An Alert Day signals severe and hazardous weather conditions.
