As the Cape Fear region wakes up Wednesday morning, residents will see a light blanket of snow covering a serious sheet of ice. There are very few power outages to report, but the area is not out of the woods yet.
The wintry mix tapered off in the morning, but New Hanover County Spokesperson Charles Smith says there won’t be a chance for the ice and snow accumulation to melt until sometime on Thursday.
Wednesday morning, January 29, 2014: a Winter Storm Warning continues until 6:00 pm tonight. Some precipitation continues to fall. Travel is very hazardous. Stay off the roads if possible. WHQR is operating on reduced power this morning, caused by the ice storm that continues in coastal North Carolina.
The timeline for the current winter storm has shifted slightly. As one meteorologist at the National Weather Service tells WHQR’s Rachel Lewis Hilburn, the warnings are still valid and experts say this is an extremely rare – and serious – storm.
