RALEIGH, N.C. -

Winter weather is heading into North Carolina again.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for much of the state from Tuesday into Thursday.

Gov. Pat McCrory said Tuesday he signed an emergency declaration, freeing state resources to react as needed.

Snowfall is expected to range from about 2 inches on the southern Outer Banks to 8 inches or more in the western mountains. Light snow was reported early Tuesday in Boone and Monroe, as well as Cherry Point, Hatteras and New Bern on the coast.

School districts in largely rural areas like Scotland and Robeson Counties stayed closed Tuesday while others including Moore and Edgecombe counties decided to close by midday.

Forecasters warned a coming mixture of sleet and freezing rain could bring down power lines.
