Winter weather spills into North Carolina

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A cold front will swing through the Carolinas Tuesday afternoon, and it drops temperatures significantly along the way. Temperatures climb to the 60's by lunchtime, and plummet to the 30's after sunset. Moisture associated with this system becomes available this evening and overnight, and will likely meet up with bitterly cold air in time to squeeze out a few light snow showers.

At this point, the threat for any wintry precipitation stays mainly North of our viewing area. However, a light dusting of snow is possible from Jacksonville to Clinton to Lumberton.

Notice how Winter Weather Advisories and Warnings leave most of Southeastern, North Carolina untouched.

Bitterly cold air arrives behind this front for Wednesday. High temperatures will likely sit around the freezing mark, with lows in the 20's and teens further inland. Strong winds will help these already chilly temperatures feel even colder through much of Wednesday.

Gov. McCrory talks about year ahead

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

Associated Press

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Gov. Pat McCrory says he wants his second year in office to focus on improving North Carolina’s economic climate, supporting public school teachers and making state government more efficient.

McCrory held a news conference Tuesday with his Cabinet and top staff to talk about his goals and other initiatives he says will affect the state for many years.

The governor promised to get a teacher pay package through the General Assembly when it reconvenes in May, but did not provide details. He wants to increase starting pay and reward teachers in high-demand subjects.

McCrory says passing a Medicaid overhaul plan may be the hardest to get through the legislature. His administration is also reviewing whether some agencies like the Department of Health and Human Services are too large and unwieldy.
