It’s cold enough that some schools are delaying classes Monday in western NC

Temperatures were hovering near freezing Monday morning in Charlotte on the coldest day of the season so far. A freeze warning was in effect in Mecklenburg County for the morning and strong winds were expected across the mountains.

Western North Carolina, including Mecklenburg County, is under a freeze warning until 10 a.m., which prompted one mountain school district to delay classes by two hours and another to close for the day.

The high Monday will be around 60 in the Charlotte area, according to the National Weather Service. Monday night’s low will be around 40.

Temperatures will rebound to the low 60s Monday afternoon as sunshine prevails. It won't be quite so cold Monday night, but most neighborhoods will still in be the 30s. We will make it to the upper 60s on Tuesday and near 70 degrees on Wednesday.
