Rosewood head wrestling coach Bill Edmundson said the team would not attend the Battle at the Bears' Den, which is hosted by Gray's Creek, on Saturday due to the impending weather. Aycock, Eastern Wayne and Goldsboro are also slated to wrestle in either individual or dual-team tournaments out of town.

Forecasters say up to 4 inches of snow is possible at the higher elevations of the northwestern mountains around Boone. Just 1 or 2 inches of snow and sleet are expected to blanket most of the rest of the state.

Snow, sleet and freezing rain was expected to fall starting around midday today. There was no rain, sleet or snow falling in the state this morning and the southeastern part of North Carolina is expected to avoid frozen precipitation.
