Light Wintry Mix Causes a Big Mess

What a morning.... an upper level disturbance that was expected to pass to our north just clipped through North Carolina this morning. The southern end of that disturbance was just enough to produce some light precipitation. Typically, that wouldn't be that big of an issue. Unfortunately, this morning's temperatures were at or just below freezing as that disturbance moved through. That produced light sleet and light freezing rain, and that was enough to create a few slick spots on some area roadways. If you were caught on I-40 in Johnston County, you know those few slick spots caused big problems. You can read more about those problems on or catch our news updates on News 14 Carolina.

If you have any pictures from this morning's mess, you can send them our way by e-mailing them to
