The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Inland Brunswick, Pender, New Hanover through 12 p.m. Tuesday; for Onslow County through 4 p.m. Tuesday. A Winter Storm Warning has been issued for Duplin County through 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Some ice accumulations up to 0.1" exists on untreated surfaces in the advisory area.

For far inland areas from a Lumberton to Elizabethtown to Kenansville line and north/west, there is a better chance to see major accumulating ice.

As the warm front pushes northward into the region, most of the area will change over to all rain, though there may be a few pockets that begrudgingly hold to some mixing towards the northwest.

We do encourage you to stay weather aware. Stay tuned to the First Alert Weather team on-air, online at WECT.com and on the WECT weather app available for free in the Apple App and Google Play stores.
