More Snow For Us With Another North Carolina Winter Storm Warning
Here we snow again neighbors with another North Carolina Winter Storm Warning taking effect tonight. Winter Storm Remus is moving toward North Carolina now Wednesday Feb. 25, 2015. Predictions for the amount of snow we are going to get are all over the place from just a few inches in the sandhills to possibly a foot toward the Virginia state line. At least this time the air temperatures will only be near freezing instead of the arctic air masswe had last week.
Here is the Winter Storm Warning from the US National Weather Service:
