Snow falls in North Carolina for first time this season. How cold will Charlotte get?

North Carolina saw its first snow Sunday, and up to another inch may fall before sunrise Monday, the National Weather Service said.

The snow is expected to appear only at relatively high altitudes, above 3,500 feet, the National Weather Service said.

In the Charlotte area, meanwhile, the temperature will be at or below 32 degrees overnight into Monday, so the National Weather Service has put a freeze warning in effect for the region, along with upstate South Carolina, northeast Georgia and western North Carolina.

Photos and videos sent to the National Weather Service from Twitter users in the mountains show everything from a minimal dusting of snow to a couple of inches.

In Charlotte on Monday, the temperature is expected to be in the 30s at 8 a.m., but the high will be 59 degrees at about 5 p.m., the National Weather Service said.
