Cold, snow moves into North Carolina

RALEIGH (AP) — Cold, snowy conditions have led to the closure of some schools and delays for others in North Carolina.
The National Weather Service on Wednesday warned of black ice conditions in the mountains of western North Carolina as well as much of the central part of the state. Forecasters said areas where snow has melted may freeze, creating black ice.
Temperatures early Wednesday ranged from 8 degrees in Boone to 30 in Lumberton.
Officials warned wind chills could be as much as 20 below zero in higher elevations. Wind chills of 5 below zero were possible in northeastern North Carolina.
Snow was reported early Wednesday in northern North Carolina, including Boone, Rocky Mount and Elizabeth City. Snow was covering many secondary roads.
Schools were delayed in many school districts. Several districts canceled classes because of the weather.
A winter weather advisory was in effect until late morning in eastern North Carolina, including Greenville, Jacksonville and the northern Outer Banks.
There were no significant power outages reported by major utilities in the state.
