Northeastern North Carolina woke up to a blanket of 1 to 3 inches of snow today after a fast-moving storm followed by frigid air swept through the area overnight.

Schools have announced they will be closed or operating on a delayed opening.

Dare, Currituck, Camden, Elizabeth City-Pasquotank, Perquimans, Edenton-Chowan, Hertford, Bertie, Hyde mainland and Tyrrell schools and College of the Albemarle’s three campuses in Manteo, Elizabeth City and Edenton are closed today.

Ocracoke and Pamlico County schools will open two hours late.

Court sessions scheduled in Currituck, Hyde, Bertie and Hertford counties for Wednesday have been postponed. The district court session in Washington County will start at 10:30 a.m.

County offices in Currituck and Hyde are closed today, while Chowan, Beaufort and Washignton county offices will open on a two hour delay.

National Park Service offices and facilities will open on a two-hour delay.

By 10 a.m., many roads were still covered with a sheet of ice and snow despite plenty of sunshine.

Today will be sunny but frigid. High temperatures will only push to 24 degrees. Moderating temperatures Thursday will turn cold again Friday.

Conditions are forecast to be blustery for the rest of the week and a wind advisory is in affect through this morning.
