RALEIGH — Everyone loves the kitchen on Thanksgiving, but this year it will be cozier than usual. Except today, when temperatures will be in the 50s, the rest of the week will be cold. So when packing for Grandma's, be sure to toss in longjohns and heavy socks.
For central North Carolina, this November has been like no other. Sunday's snow is why. In the Triangle there has never been so much snow early in the season.
More than 2 inches fell Sunday at Raleigh-Durham International Airport. Many roads, especially secondary roads, were covered with snow and slush Sunday afternoon.
The good news is that roads were still sufficiently warm that the accumulation melted overnight in most places. Traffic was able to move easily Monday morning.
Several thousands of people were without power for a while Sunday, but Duke and CP&L officials say everyone has their power back on Monday morning.
Monday night's low is predicted at 24, and the highs the rest of the week in the Triangle will be in the low 40s through Thursday, and the high Friday is now predicted to be 49.
Hmmmmm, whereAREthose mittens?
