RALEIGH, N.C. — Most of central North Carolina saw rain instead of the predicted sleet or freezing rain Thursday because temperatures were too high.
However, some areas such as northern Durham County and Person County, did see a light snowfall. Forecasters said that some isolated areas could see slick areas as water on roads may freeze overnight.
Three N.C. school systems in counties along the Virginia border have closed schools for the day. Person, Caswell and Halifax counties did not have school, but for other schools in the region, school was in session.
Forecasters had predicted that temperatures would be 5 or 6 degrees colder Thursday morning, which might have caused some freezing on bridges and overpasses. But, at 5:30 a.m., temperatures were around 36 or 37 degrees in the region.
