Storm dumps snow on N.C. beaches

The Washington Post Sunday - - POLITICS & THE NATION -

Snow is pil­ing up on North Carolina beaches, a rare sight, and fore­cast­ers are warn­ing res­i­dents along the rest of the East Coast to be pre­pared for even more.

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 six inches fall­ing on coastal ar­eas north of Wilm­ing­ton.

Fred­er­ick said 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.
