The Outer Banks missed out on the first wintry blast to hit northeastern North Carolina in more than two years, with just a few snow squalls that ended around daybreak.

But it is still windy and cold, with high surf and blowing sand. In other words, just a typical Friday in Feburary on the beach.

A few scattered power outages have been reported, with around 150 customers in the dark early this morning in Kitty Hawk.

Schools across the region cancelled classes for students on Friday as a precaution.

Further inland, reports are coming in that between one and three inches of snow accumulated in some spots with the fast-moving storm system.

Travel to interior sections of North Carolina could be treacherous tonight, as temperatures are forecast to drop to below freezing after skies clear later today.
