RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - From the mountains to the coast, North Carolina is in for some rough weather.

A strong cold front moved through coastal areas Saturday, bringing northwest winds and rough seas. A coastal flood advisory and a wind advisory are part of the weekend forecast for the Outer Banks of Dare and Hyde counties. The National Weather Service says minor sound side flooding is likely.

A winter storm warning was in effect for parts of the mountains for high winds and heavy snow. The weather service says 8 inches of snow fell in parts of the mountains. Asheville reported 3 to 5 inches and areas around Boone had 2 to 3 inches.

The weather service also has issued freeze warnings and wind advisories in western North Carolina.
