RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Bitterly cold temperatures are reported across North Carolina.

The National Weather Service said temperatures Thursday morning ranged from minus 1 in Boone to 18 degrees along the coast.

Wind chill advisories were posted through late Thursday morning across the state for readings that ranged from 20 below zero in the higher elevations in the mountains to zero along the coast.

Some schools cancelled classes while many more district delayed the start of classes so students would not be exposed to the coldest conditions while waiting for buses.

Duke Energy asked its customers in North Carolina and South Carolina to reduce electricity usage to help avoid potentially high energy demand.
