Snow arrives through morning hours; tapers off around noon

Snow before 11 a.m., then a slight chance of flurries between 11 a.m. and noon are possible before gradually tapering off, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington. New accumulations are expected to generally be less than an inch.

Given the warm ground temperatures, snow will accumulate on grassy and elevated surfaces. However, with temperatures dropping below freezing, some isolated slick spots may develop, particularly on decks, bridges, and overpasses, according to the NWS.

Those planning travel should allow extra time to reach their destination.
