It seems that there is a possibility of snow along the Outer Banks this Christmas weekend.  Rob Morris, over at the Outer Banks Voice, www.outerbanksvoice.com, is reporting, Coastal storm could bring some snow this weekend ,that there is a potential for some snow Christmas into Sunday.  It looks like the most forecast accumulation would be an inch or 2.   

If I would have to guess I would think we will receive rain as usual, but a white Christmas on the Outer Banks would be nice.

Dare County warns against walking on ice in sounds

DARE COUNTY, N.C. - County officials on the Outer Banks are warning residents and visitors to avoid walking on ice-covered patches that have appeared recently in shallow parts of the Albemarle and Pamlico sounds.

Ice must reach a thickness of at least four inches before it is safe to walk on, according to the Dare County press release.

It takes an extended period of freezing temperatures for ice to reach that thickness, and that rarely happens on the Outer Banks.

Parents are warned to watch children closely around water, as are pet owners advised to keep animals away from the ice.

If you see someone slip into frigid water, call 911 immediately.
