Sun begins melting snow from NC's latest storm

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The sun is out across North Carolina, slowly erasing evidence of the latest snowfall across much of the state.

Authorities blamed icy roads and drunken driving for one fatal wreck in Charlotte, but for the most part, Saturday's snow caused few power outages and disruptions.

The snow made it to areas that missed the first two storms in North Carolina this winter. Nearly four inches of snow fell in Charlotte in that city's first measurable snow since 2011. Wilmington also reported snow for the first time in two years.

Authorities reported icy patches on roads before sunrise Sunday. But with the forecast calling for sunny skies and temperatures in the upper 30 or lower 40s, the ice was expected to melt without causing too many more problems.
