“Sandy”: What can you expect?

Saturday, October 27th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A Tropical Storm Warning is now in effect. The center of Sandy will pass far to our east this weekend, but the storm is quite large. As a result, we expect some of the outer rain/wind bands to push onshore. Here is a detailed forecast for the next 36 hours. Keep in mind that higher wind/rain estimates are for coastal counties. Lower wind/rain estimates for inland counties.

Saturday AM- Mostly cloudy with heavy showers possible. Winds will be 15-25 mph out of the northeast, with a few higher gusts over 35 mph. 

Saturday Afternoon- Mostly cloudy with heavy showers possible. Winds will be 25-35 mph out of the northeast, with a few gusts over 40 mph.

Saturday Night- Cloudy with heavy rain. Winds will be 25-40 mph out of the northeast, with a few gusts over 50 mph.

Sunday AM- Cloudy with heavy rain. Winds will be 25-40 mph out of the northeast, with a few gusts over 50 mph.

Sunday afternoon- Showers gradually ending. Winds will remain gusty (over 40 mph) at times.

——————————————————————————————————————

For the coastal waters, seas will approach 15-17 feet by late Saturday. Winds will range from 35 to 45 kts, with a few gusts over 50 kts.

NC agency: More kids could soon enroll in pre-K

Saturday, October 27th, 2012

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – North Carolina officials carrying out Gov. Beverly Perdue’s directive to expand the state’s pre-kindergarten program say another 4,000 at-risk 4-year-olds could enroll very soon, rather than the 1,000 first expected.

Health and Human Services Secretary Al Delia said Friday the higher number came after counties were surveyed about classroom space and waiting lists. Delia’s agency is now examining exactly where children could enroll next month.

Perdue announced last week she would shift $20 million in funds to enroll 6,300 children in the program this school year. The governor said she’s obligated because of a court ruling.

Delia’s office said part of the money could come from foster care services and a program to pay for medicine for people with AIDS, but no services would be cut and sources could change.
