Wintry weather expected with low pressure system

A low pressure system is expected to slowly track off the Carolina coast Friday, Jan. 8.

The system is forecast to bring rain Friday. A rain/snow mix for inland areas mainly along and north of Highway 70 is expected overnight into Saturday morning.

The National Weather Service says snowfall accumulation should be light, about a half inch, and confined to grassy areas. Roads should remain wet.

Increasing northeast winds on Friday could result in minor coastal flooding for southern Pamlico Sound and Neuse/Bay rivers.

High surf could result in minor beach erosion north of Cape Hatteras.

A small craft advisory has been posted for Pamlico Sound from 11 a.m. Friday to 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 9. North winds are expected to blow 17 to 29 miles per hour with gusts to 35.

On coastal waters from Oregon Inlet to Ocracoke Inlet, small craft advisory conditions are likely with four to six foot seas expected.
