NC university board considers no tuition hike

Friday, February 21st, 2014

CHAPEL HILL, NC (AP) — North Carolina’s public university system is about to do without tuition increases next year for undergraduates who live in the state, though out-of-state students would see higher costs.

The University of North Carolina’s governing board has scheduled a vote Friday on plans to hold tuition costs steady for state residents. Fees would rise by an average of 4 percent, some of the lowest in five years.

The state Legislature ordered tuition increases for out-of-state students of 12 percent next year at campuses in Chapel Hill, Wilmington, Greensboro, and Winston-Salem. Out-of-state tuition will rise 6 percent at most other campuses.

Lawmakers did not require higher tuition for non-resident undergraduates at UNC-Charlotte and North Carolina State University. N.C. State is asking for a 9 percent increase, Charlotte does not want an increase.

Strong storms on tap through Friday afternoon

Friday, February 21st, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A strong cold front will march through the East Coast today bringing the chance for storms with gusty winds. Air is already very warm and moist ahead of this front, meaning some storms could become severe.

Here's a look at radar around 8:00 AM.

The action will start in Western Counties first around lunchtime, with storms making it to the coast last in the afternoon. The main threat with this system is gusty winds between 20-30 mph.

Remember, trees and power-lines have already been weakened by the past winter storm. That means gusty winds could be potentially damaging to property.
