CHARLOTTE, N.C. - WEDNESDAY: Snow has begun to fall in the mountains early Wednesday and that will last all day long, with grand totals of up to 6 inches or more expected at the highest elevations (lower areas will see around 2-3 inches).
Closer to Charlotte, cold rain will be the story before dawn, but a few flakes may mix in at times. No accumulation is expected though.
A few areas along the Interstate 40 corridor could see a bit of a dusting which could lead to some minor travel issues.
Schools in Ashe, Avery and Watauga counties will be closed Wednesday. Catawba and Alexander counties and Hickory Public Schools will operate on a two-hour delay.
Conditions in Charlotte will dry out by Wednesday afternoon, but it will stay windy and cold, with highs in the upper 40s.
Drier weather remains in place overnight through Friday as temps recover to near 60 degrees, but more rain is back for the weekend, and it could also lead to more mountain wintry weather.
