The weather along the coast can be difficult to explain to folks from "off". I thought I'd give a good example from this morning.
On Wednesday, February 26, 2015 at 7AM it was 34 degrees in New Bern. At the same time Hatteras was at 55 degrees. There was rain, sleet, snow and freezing rain all in between.
Beach water temperatures ranged from the about 60 degrees in the Raleigh Bay area to 40's North of Ocracoke.
Coastal weather, just like coastal people and locations can be very diverse.

I agree! A wide range of weather. Such is North Carolina.

I live in Wilmington, and we were quite blessed to have just a tiny bit of snow, and some slight freezing rain. Nothing to complain about… we were quite fortunate.

The triangle and all points west had a lot of problems.

That's typical...the "freezing line" is typically north of Wilmington in the Winter...somewhere around Wallace. Usually may be one system a year brings it further south...this year it obviously moved further south than normal and we had a few.

Tomorrow the forecast for Wilmington is 52 and in Raleigh its 38. That is fairly typical in the winter...usually about 10 degree's...

Thursday's forecast calls for mid to upper 60's in the day dropping into the 20's at night. I've lived on the coast for almost 35 years a do not recall a winter like this one.
