CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The High Country and mountains are preparing for a blast of winter weather this weekend.
That system will bring cold rain for Charlotte, but a wintry mess for the mountains again.
Snow has been falling in the High Country and mountains for much of Saturday, but may change to a wintry mix through the day. Several inches of a mix of sleet and snow could add up by the evening.
Winter storm watches are already in place for the mountain communities as they brace for the latest blast of winter.
A few flakes could mix in around the Foothills and Piedmont, but nothing is expected to accumulate. The main story in the metro will be the cold temps, as highs stay in the 40s all weekend.
Much warmer weather will finally return by the middle of next week, hitting close to 70 by Thursday.
