Charlotte area could see snow Wednesday


The Charlotte area could see more than 2 inches of snow starting late Wednesday.

Rain will start sometime Wednesday afternoon, then turn into snow around 10 p.m., said Scott Krentz, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. The snow showers will continue until daybreak, leaving between 1 1/2 and 2 1/2 inches of snow on the ground Thursday morning.

Krentz said Wednesday’s forecast is expected to be a “low-end” event, unlikely to have the same impact on the region as last week’s ice storm. Krentz said another system with precipitation is forecast to move in over the weekend, but that system is expected to hit the Charlotte area as temperatures begin to warm, and the precipitation will mostly be rain.
