Charlotte can expect below-normal temperatures all week, although it should remain partly to mostly sunny.

Tuesday’s forecast high of 42 is 12 degrees below normal for this week of the year.

Highs are expected to remain in the low 40s through Saturday before plummeting Sunday to 32 and Monday to 39, according to the National Weather Service in Greer, S.C.

Expected lows will be frigid at 23 early Wednesday, 19 early Thursday, 23 early Friday, 27 early Saturday and then 15 degrees Sunday and 20 early Monday. A Canadian high pressure system will be to blame for keeping weekend temperatures low.

The next chance of rain is Monday, although right now the chances are slim, at 30 percent.

If you miss snow, just head to the mountains, where a winter weather advisory remains until 7 a.m. Thursday. In Boone, an additional 1 to 4 inches could fall.

Snow accumulations and gusty winds could topple trees in the mountains. Wind chill values of less than 5 degrees below zero could make it dangerous to be outside at high elevations Tuesday night, according to the weather service.
