Multiple wrecks were reported along I-95 in both directions near Lumberton. None of the wrecks yielded serious injuries, troopers said.

In Johnston County, according to the North Carolina Department of Transportation, traffic was heavy on Interstate 40 near Clayton, between milemarkers 308 and 310.

No delays were reported at Raleigh-Durham or other major airports across the country. The weather across the the country was mostly chilly and clear.
