NC justices will not delay 2014 elections

Friday, January 24th, 2014

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — The 2014 elections will go on as planned after North Carolina’s highest court refused to delay them while the justices consider whether the most recent version of election districts are legal.

The state Supreme Court said Friday it would not delay the elections as requested by voters and groups challenging the district maps in court.

They wanted to halt the start of the election schedule that begins Feb. 10 with candidate filing, as well as the May 6 primary until the court ruled whether the boundaries are legal. The seven-member court heard oral arguments on the issue earlier this month.

The maps for General Assembly and congressional districts were approved by the Republican-led legislature in 2011 and used in the 2012 elections.

Despite bitter cold, January’s been pretty average

Friday, January 24th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — This cold weather seems like it just keeps going on and on and on. But has it really been that cold that long in southeastern North Carolina?

From 23-degree morning temperatures to tiny snowflakes in Wilmington (Yes, they were tiny. Really tiny, but they still count), snow-wonder why people think January has been C-O-L-D cold. But before you fly farther south for the winter check out some evidence that says otherwise.

Wilmington spent 15 of the past 23 days at or above seasonal averages. Normal temperatures for January run between 56 and 57 degrees, and actually Wilmington recorded a stretch of 70- and 60-degree weather just more than a week ago.

So why does it seem so cold? That’s easy. When it was below normal in Wilmington, it was well below normal. Statistically, though, only five days so far this month were in the 30s and 40s. Today, of course, is another one of those 30-degree days, and it looks like below-normal temperatures headline the rest of this month.

That makes January about half and half. Or just about average.
