Old Man Winter Barrels into the Outer Banks
By Kip Tabb –
It’s going to get cold on the Outer Banks . . . not cold like they’re experiencing up in New Jersey where I grew up where the temps are going to dip to single digits tonight and the forecast calls for 8”-10” of snow.
But it’s still going to be cold here on the Outer Banks. It’s not forecast to climb above freezing tomorrow. That’s cold.
We are supposed to get anywhere from 1”-3” over night, although all of the official forecasts seem to feel the lower figure is more likely.
As a service to our readers, we’re publishing the National Weather Service Winter Weather Advisory. Below that are the forecasts for the Weather Channel, Weather Underground and Accuweather. Sometimes there’s some differences among the three of them. Not so much this time.
