Charlotte could get some light snowfall on Saturday

Snow flurries could show up in the Charlotte area late Saturday and early Sunday, but no accumulation is expected, John Tompko, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service said Thursday.

“It’s something we’re keeping an eye on,” Tompko said. “It would be very light snowfall.”

Until then, the Charlotte area can expect sun, according to the latest forecasts. Highs will remain at 48 or 49, a couple of degrees lower than what’s normal for this time of year.

The chance for rain and snow is slight Saturday night. There is a 50 percent chance Sunday.

By Sunday night, rain is forecast to move into the region and stick around Monday.

Tompko said several systems will move into the area during the next few days, explaining the sunny forecast one day and precipitation the next.

The worst of the weather will be in the North Carolina mountains, with strong winds and temperatures falling into the teens predicted.

In Boone, for instance, the low will be around 19 Friday night with wind gusts up to 40 mph.
