RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Virtually all of North Carolina is expected to see snow this weekend.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for most of the state for Friday afternoon through Saturday afternoon. A winter storm watch is in effect in a few areas. Only the southeastern corner of the state is not expecting snow before the storm moves through.

Bitterly cold temperatures are expected to follow the snow.

Utilities are making plans to deal with power outages. No problems were reported early Friday.
