Coastal storm to bring heavy rain, wind, coastal flooding Tuesday

Winter Storm Tuesday/Wednesday February 11-12

Low pressure formed offshore along a stalled frontal boundary during the evening of February 10 and tracked up off the North Carolina coast during the day Tuesday. With cold air in place, this led to snowfall over most inland areas, with primarily sleet and freezing rain along the coast. A burst of heavier snow led to accumulation of up to 10 inches in portions of Craven and Pamlico Counties (Figure 1) during the afternoon hours on Tuesday. A stronger secondary low led to additional light wintry precipitation over inland areas on Wednesday.
