Mostly Rain, Warmer Temps For Triangle Area
Posted December 18, 2005
RALEIGH, N.C. — Only rain was falling in most areas within the WRAL-TV viewing area Sunday morning, as the chance of winter weather decreased.
Accumulation of frozen precipitation was unlikely for most areas, but a light coating of snow on grassy and untreated surfaces from around Chapel Hill to Roanoke Rapids and points north, according to WRAL meteorologist Mike Moss.
There were some reports, however, of some snowflakes in Cary and Apex.
Travel problems were unlikely as roads remained wet and all winter weather advisories for the region were discontinued.
Roadways were good. No reports of problems on the road or black ice.
Various counties were ready in case winter weather did affect roadways. Person and Granville counties began pre-treating bridges and overpasses with sand and salt at midnight. Durham County also pre-treated major roads with salt and brine. Road crews in Wake County were monitoring the weather and would have been ready in case road treatments were necessary.
