RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Some schools in North Carolina are still closed after the snow, sleet and ice from a storm earlier this week.

Other school districts were delaying the start of class Friday because of dangerous road conditions.

The National Weather Service said many roads in eastern North Carolina still had slush and ice. Some light rain or drizzle also is possible in eastern North Carolina, although forecasters say in most cases, temperatures there are above the freezing mark.

Forecasters also warned that patchy black ice is also possible on secondary roads in the mountains of western North Carolina as well as much of the central part of the state.

Low temperatures early Friday ranged from 10 in Southern Pines to 35 at Hatteras.

Major utilities reported no serious outages Friday morning.
