"We're going to have to watch out for local slick spots, mainly on bridges and overpasses first, and as we get to the late morning, temperatures will then rise back above freezing," Petro says.

"We're not done with this yet, but the good news is the back edge (of the storm) is quickly moving east.

Most public schools are operating on a delay Friday.  Districts on a three hour delay include Orange, Wake, Durham, Alamance, and Guilford.  Two-hour delays are in effect for Chatham, Johnston, Harnett, Franklin and Granville.  Person and Winston-Salem/Forsyth Schools are closed today.
