RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — It was a mess across central North Carolina Sunday thanks to every form of wintry precipitation.
We had a snow and sleet mix to start the day, and for most of us it didn’t amount to much, but Oxford managed to pick up 2 inches with very close to that for western Durham County. Franklinton and the city of Durham had around 1.5 inches with 1 inch for Morrisville in Wake County.
While it wasn’t much, that didn’t stop kids from trying to make the best of a little snow by getting out and playing and doing a little sledding.
Snow and sleet can be pretty to look it and can be shoveled away, but ice is much more of a nuisance and we had a good amount of it Sunday.
Nearly 0.20 inches of ice coated surfaces near Raeford as well as Lake Wheeler, with 0.10-0.15 inches across Wake County for places like Raleigh, Holly Springs, and Apex. Fayetteville picked up just under 0.08 inches of freezing rain, but even a glazing of ice can cause significant issues.
