Although rain is moving into Charlotte Saturday afternoon, travel should not be affected with ground surface temperatures in the low to mid 40s. Winter weather conditions will begin taking place after midnight and a mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain is expected to begin early Sunday morning.
Precipitation totals will vary based on location:
- Northern Mecklenburg: 4-6 inches
- Southern Mecklenburg: 1-3 inches
Another surge of moisture (rain or snow) is expected Monday afternoon. Any remaining accumulation will likely re-freeze in the early hours of Tuesday and Wednesday.
Charlotte Department of Transportation crews are working in close coordination with the North Carolina Department of Transportation to proactively prepare roads for winter weather conditions.
We encourage the community to begin preparing for the storm now, including purchasing any necessary food, medicine or other supplies.
This page will be updated with new information for the duration of the storm.
