This week’s topsy-turvy weather in the Charlotte region continued Friday morning, with snow showers along the Interstate 77 corridor from Huntersville to Mooresville and points north.
None of the white stuff stuck to the ground, however, and meteorologists said the weather system producing the snow rapidly moved from the area in the 5 a.m. hour.
On Wednesday, severe storms downed trees in Charlotte and Concord. A tornado struck Lexington County, S.C., in West Columbia. And rains caused a landslide on U.S. 64, about 10 miles southwest of Morganton in Burke County.
Friday is expected to be sunny, although a high of only 47 is forecast, about 5 degrees below normal.

Saturday and Sunday should be sunny as well, with highs rebounding to a respective 50 and 52.
Another cold front is expected to arrive from the west on Monday, ushering in frigid Canadian air that could last until midweek, according to the National Weather Service in Greer, S.C. Snow showers are possible in the mountains.
Highs are forecast to fall to 49 Monday, 44 Tuesday, 39 Wednesday and 44 Thursday.
Monday has a 40 percent chance of rain. The rest of the week should be partly to mostly sunny.
