NORTH CAROLINA -- Parts of North Carolina saw their first dose of winter weather Friday.

Snow made its way to the western part of the state, as well as in the Triad.

There have been 90 car accidents since 8 a.m. Friday morning. There is a possibility that snow slush could freeze more likely on secondary roads.

The City of Greensboro has declared a White Flag Emergency.

A White Flag Emergency is when the city along with community partners turn homeless shelters into overnight warming shelters during the coldest winter nights.

They provide folks with food and place to sleep, but the shelters say they need volunteers and donations.

Officials say the warming shelters are not just for folks without homes.

"These can also be available to folks who may be housed but don't have eat or maybe have an issue that's going to put them in danger during this weather,” said Michelle Kennedy, executive director of the Interactive Resource Center.

The city is on white flag emergency till Sunday, December 10.

Officials say if temperatures are still below 25 degrees, they will extend the days.
