CHARLOTTE, N.C. —

You might want to get outside Sunday, and soak in the sunshine and warmer temperatures, because changes are on the way.

Highs for Sunday will be close to 60 degrees.

Clouds will move in Monday and it will be cooler, with highs in the upper 40s.

There will be a slight chance for a shower Monday evening. -- anything that falls Monday will be rain in Charlotte and snow in the mountains, but not all areas will see rain.

A winter storm is expected to arrive Tuesday with snow falling throughout the day.

The only question is how much snow will fall.

Forecast models show anywhere from 2 to 4 inches with higher amounts further to the southeast.

One of the models continues to bring the storm right over Charlotte, which would mean more snow.

The positioning of the storm is critical and could be an even more significant winter event with up to 1 foot of snow, should Charlotte get a direct hit.

The models are starting to show agreement that Charlotte will have a wintry mix Wednesday, although it is too early to tell what will fall.

The winter storm will clear out Thursday.
