Rain and snow fell over most of Eastern North Carolina on Monday.

Rainy conditions were seen through most of ENC early for a good part of the day. Then, conditions switched over to snow for most of the area. That prompted a number of school systems to post delays for Tuesday due to the potential for black ice forming as conditions get colder during the night Monday and into Tuesday.

We are tracking a low in the StormTrack 12 Weather Center. The low is moving along our coast and will bring an 80 percent chance for rain, mixing with and changing to snow late for eastern Carolina. The low will pull away enough to bring an end to the rain and snow after midnight. Any accumulation will be mainly light and on grassy areas and elevated surfaces. It will be windy and cold. Lows will be in the low 30s inland and mid to upper 30s along the coast.
