This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for central North Carolina.

.DAY ONE...Today and tonight.

Rain may become a light freezing rain along the Virginia border

counties late tonight and early Friday before ending. Very little if

any impact is expected with only a trace of ice possible on elevated

surfaces. Surface and road temperatures should remain above freezing

keeping these surfaces wet.

DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.

A Winter Weather Advisory may be needed for portions of the Triad

and northern Piedmont late Friday night into Saturday.

A period of freezing rain is expected late Friday night into

Saturday morning as temperatures fall into the lower 30s. A glaze of

ice may develop especially on elevated surfaces. Up to a tenth or

two tenths of an inch of ice may form on elevated surfaces, such as

tree limbs, branches, and power lines. The areas that have the

highest probabilities of ice include Roxboro, Oxford, Henderson,

Warrenton, the Piedmont Triad region, Louisburg, and Roanoke Rapids.

Temperatures are expected to fall to between 30 and 32 for several

hours between 300 am and 900 am Saturday with periods of freezing

rain expected.

Hazardous travel may also develop if the road surfaces can fall

below freezing. Bridges and overpasses or elevated surfaces will

freeze more quickly.

A Winter Weather Advisory for portions of the Triad and northern

Piedmont is possible late Friday night into Saturday.
