Advisory

NWS ISSUED A WINTER STORM WATCH FROM LATE FRI NIGHT THROUGH SAT NIGHT. HEAVY SNOW BANDS AND GUSTY WINDS POSSIBLE.

THE NATL WEATHER SVC IN MOUNT HOLLY HAS ISSUED A WINTER STORM WATCH WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM LATE FRI NIGHT THROUGH LATE SAT NIGHT.

LOW PRESSURE WILL INTENSIFY AS IT MOVES UP THE COAST FRI NIGHT AND AFFECTS OUR AREA LATER FRI NIGHT INTO OR THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT. HEAVY SNOW IS POSSIBLE AS THIS NOR/EASTER MOVES JUST TO THE EAST OF OUR AREA.

WARMER AIR MAY MIX IN FROM THE OCEAN & CAUSE A MIX OR CHANGE TO RAIN RIGHT ALONG THE COAST KEEPING SNOW AMOUNTS LESS THAN AREAS JUST INLAND. HOWEVER, AS THE STORM PULLS AWAY EVEN THESE AREAS MAY CHANGE BACK TO ALL SNOW & RECEIVE HEAVY SNOW AMOUNTS.

THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR AREAS OF HEAVY SNOW TO COMBINE WITH GUSTY WINDS TO CAUSE DANGEROUS TRAVEL CONDITIONS SAT & INTO SATURDAY NIGHT. WINDS ARE LIKELY TO BE STRONG ESPECIALLY CLOSER TO & AT THE COAST. THIS WILL WORSEN TRAVEL CONDITIONS BY CAUSING BLOWING & DRIFTING OF THE SNOW.

A WINTER STORM WATCH MEANS THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR SIGNIFICANT SNOW SLEET OR ICE ACCUMULATIONS THAT MAY IMPACT TRAVEL. CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE LATEST FORECASTS.
