RALEIGH, NC (WFMY) - North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper is urging North Carolinians to prepare in light of this weekend's anticipated winter storm, which would be the first one of the season. Cooper says power outages and slick roads are possible in the coming days.
The WFMY News 2 weather team agrees the Piedmont is likely to see hazardous and even dangerous travel at times on Sunday and Monday, with neighborhood roads potentially staying rough for several days. Power outages are a possibility given the likelihood that we'll see a heavy, wet snow. Possible ice, sleet and freezing rain could also cause problems.
