Rare Coastal Snow Covers North Carolina's Beaches

Saturday, 22 Jan 2011 07:18 PM

 

ATLANTIC BEACH, N.C. (AP) — A rare snow is piling up on the North Carolina beaches, and forecasters are warning residents along the rest of the East Coast to be prepared for even more snow.

National Weather Service meteorologist Robert Frederick says a strengthening storm system pulling off the Atlantic Coast on Saturday threw back some heavy snow on North Carolina, with up to 6 inches falling on coastal areas north of Wilmington.

Frederick says three inches of snow or more could fall on the Outer Banks.

Tabitha Styron at the oceanfront Seahawk Motor Lodge in Atlantic Beach says some of her guests are grumbling, but most of them are walking outside and can't believe what they are seeing.

Flurries from the storm were reported as far south as Charleston, S.C.
