CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The sun has dipped behind a batch of clouds Monday afternoon as the first of three cold fronts move in.

While there is a chance of rain and possible snow in the mountains, the bigger story this will be the progressively colder temperatures,
according to Severe Center 9 Meteorologist Steve Udelson.

Showers are expected Monday night from about 9 p.m. until 9 a.m. Tuesday.

Temperatures in Charlotte will only dip into 40s. The clouds will part by lunchtime Tuesday with temperatures back to the mid-to-upper 50s.

The next cold front is expected to push through Wednesday afternoon.

Rain will change to snow in the mountains as the cold air works in.

A thin band of rain showers for metro early to mid-afternoon and may end with a few flurries.

The last front on Friday brings more rain showers and the real deal chill for the weekend.

Highs will be in the low-to mid-40s Saturday and a little warmer Sunday with lows in the teens to low 20s.
