Winter Storm Warning starts at 5 a.m.

Monday, January 27th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for all of Southeastern North Carolina beginning Tuesday at 5 a.m. and continuing through Wednesday evening.

Despite warm weather Monday with highs in the 60s, an Arctic cold front approaches from the west, and that will change our weather dramatically come tomorrow and Wednesday.

Lots of cold air will be in place in the wake of the Arctic cold front right as it stalls offshore. Waves of low pressure will ride up this front like cars on a highway. That means a lot of moisture will be available starting Tuesday afternoon. With cold air already in place, precipitation will likely fall as snow and sleet in southeastern North Carolina beginning Tuesday afternoon and lingering into Wednesday night.

Accumulation of at least three inches is possible at this point, with heavier accumulations West of I-95. Depending on how much warm air gets wrapped into the system, the coast could see more sleet than snow. Either way, bridges may become icy and dangerous because those surfaces will cool much faster than the ground.

Stay with WWAY and the StormTrack 3 Weather Team for continuing developments and forecasts as the system approaches.
