  • 4001 Tuckaseegee Road in Charlotte, which is scheduled to operate from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. StarMed officials will monitor weather conditions early Sunday morning and make adjustments accordingly, which could mean a delayed opening time or closure.
  • 4355 Gum Branch Road. in Jacksonville, N.C., which is scheduled to be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Onslow County, which includes Jacksonville, is expected to receive rain rather than snow/ice.
