Freezing weather can be dangerous, that’s why authorities constantly warn people to take extreme care when traveling under such risky conditions. As reported in a Washington Times article:
Cold, snowy conditions have led to the closure of some schools and delays for others in North Carolina.
The National Weather Service on Wednesday warned of black ice conditions in the mountains of western North Carolina as well as much of the central part of the state. Forecasters said areas where snow has melted may freeze, creating black ice.
Temperatures early Wednesday ranged from 8 degrees in Boone to 30 in Lumberton.
Officials warned wind chills could be as much as 20 below zero in higher elevations. Wind chills of 5 below zero were possible in northeastern North Carolina.
Snow was reported early Wednesday in northern North Carolina, including Boone, Rocky Mount and Elizabeth City. Snow was covering many secondary roads.
However, freezing weather isn’t only a danger on the road, it can be quite risky for your home, too. When ice dams form on your roof, this can lead to water making its way into your home, resulting in serious damage.
