CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The next storm will pass far enough to our south Saturday that the Metro’s rain chance is slim and really only for a few hours in the morning.  Sunday looks nice with temperatures in the mid to upper 50s and partly sunny.
 
After that things get dicey, according to chief meteorologist Steve Udelson.

The guidance is in two distinct camps with Tuesday and Wednesday's storm.
 
Unfortunately, only one model has been consistent and for two days it has given the area a foot of snow.
 
The other camp takes most of the storm to our south and gives the area mostly rain.

This storm also will come in chunks.  The first may be as early as Monday evening.  It looks light and the area would likely see a mix of some kind with probably snow and rain. This type of setup rarely gives the  lots of ice. It's usually a snow/rain mix.

Udelson said he and his team will continue following the models in hopes they will stop flip-flopping and possibly come into better agreement.
