It looks like Charlotte will get its share of snow this season after all.
The National Weather Service announced a winter weather advisory from the Piedmont to the mountains of North Carolina as a cold front moves through the area Tuesday evening.
Experts expect snow to arrive late Tuesday night into the early hours of Wednesday morning with around 1 inch of accumulation in the Charlotte area. The foothills and mountains should expect more – up to 3 inches.
The National Weather Service said to expect slippery roads and unsafe driving conditions. The NCDOT dispatched 337 trucks across North Carolina, pre-treating roads to get ahead of the weather.
