NCDOT gets ready for winter weather by prepping area roads

The National Weather Service is calling for snow in Moore County starting Wednesday mid-morning and ending Wednesday night. Snowfall amounts increased from previous forecasts. 

What has changed?

Forecasters on Monday were predicting up to two inches of snow for the northern end of the county and less than an inch for the southern end. The forecast changed Tuesday morning with all of Moore County receiving 2 inches.  Forecasters are now calling for 4-6 inches of snow.

Predicted snowfall as of early Wednesday morning

“This will be a very fast-moving system with the greatest impact Wednesday morning through Wednesday afternoon,” said The National Weather Service on social media. “There will be very cold temperatures in the teens and wind chills in the single digits are expected Wednesday night and Thursday morning.”

This announcement comes on the heels of a surprise snowstorm that brought up to 6 inches to Moore County earlier this month which left motorists stranded for hours.
