Snow overnight, weather clears tomorrow

(Dare County Sheriff’s Office)

Based on the last National Weather Service briefing on Jan. 21, the Dare County Sheriff’s office posted this mid-afternoon update on its Facebook page. The main takeaway is that we could still get a few inches of snow overnight, but by tomorrow, the weather will improve.

Here’s the update:

So far, the forecast has been on target, and we should expect the rain on the Mainland and Northern Dare to make a transition to a wintery mix and then snow later today and overnight.  Accumulations of up to 3 inches are possible.  Precipitation should be over by early morning with clearing skies, diminishing winds and temperatures moving above freezing during the day Saturday.  Saturday night will see temps drop below freezing in some areas leading to icy road surfaces.  Sunday will bring temperatures that will stay well above freezing as we start next week.  Potential for minor coastal flooding and wet and sandy roads on Hatteras will be with us until the wind subsides and rain ends.
