CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Snow is falling in Charlotte and it will stay with us through the evening and begin to pile up, according to Severe Weather Center Team 9 meteorologist John Ahrens.
Snow will continue through 8 p.m. and as it intensifies, the area could see some heavy accumulations.

5-day forecast

It appears that areas south and east are in the likeliest spot for heavy snow. Ballantyne on south could see accumulations over 2 inches. Areas in South Carolina could be in the 3 to 5 inches range.

The snow will end later this evening but the dangers will not. Temperatures on Tuesday afternoon were in the 20s, so everything that is falling will stick and the temperatures will make it slick. Ahrens said to expect very dangerous travel to continue through Wednesday morning.

Temperatures will struggle to warm up Wednesday, with highs in the mid-30s.

A gradual warm up gets under way by the end of the week but Channel 9 is tracking another front that will move through overnight Saturday into early Sunday.
