Right now it’s looking like there is a pretty good chance we are going to get at least some snow here in the piedmont of North Carolina. Kids, I sincerely hope I didn’t just jinx that for you. Where I am in the south part of Charlotte it seems like it’s been YEARS since we’ve gotten any significant accumulation. But that won’t keep me from holding out hope for a winter wonderland. As a kid there was nothing more exciting than a snow day and all the fun activities that came with it!

The current forecast has us expecting a mix of snow and ice, I’m personally hoping that leans more snow! Precipitation is supposed to begin Saturday night and continue throughout the day Sunday. Currently, there is an 80% change and accumulation could be anywhere from 3-8 inches per some forecasts.

FORECAST: We're staying clear and cold today, but all eyes are focused on the winter weather that could arrive this weekend ❄️ --> bit.ly/33o2vGO
