Winter weather including a mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain are affecting portions of the Duke Energy service area. We are closely monitoring the forecast and are prepared to respond if winter weather should cause power interruptions for our customers.
Dear Community Partner:
• As with any weather system that may impact our service area, our meteorologists are closely monitoring the weather conditions.
• Current weather models indicate a mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain will occur over parts of the Duke Energy service area. Typically snow does not create conditions where we would expect to have widespread power outages; however, freezing rain combined with windy conditions, weakened trees and saturated grounds, along with deteriorating traffic conditions can impact our power delivery systems.
