ENC continues slow thaw from last week's winter storm

Monday saw temperatures above freezing in Eastern North Carolina.

That was a welcome sight as the snow and ice we received last Wednesday night and Thursday morning began an accelerated melt. As temperatures continue to warm, we can expect to see the snow, ice and slush go away as it'll be near 70 degrees by Thursday.

Ahhh ... ENC weather. You gotta love it.

In the meantime, most school systems will remain closed Tuesday as rural areas in respective counties remained either uncleared or slow to return to normal. (Check our closings and delays page for the latest). That means another day off for students -- five for Craven County Schools students and four for almost everyone else.

We're also dealing with issues like when is a good time to clean your car (it's likely a mess with all the dirt, salt and other elements). We're also hearing lots of reports of pipes bursting and water damage from them freezing.
