A cold air mass now sitting over the region could couple with an area of low pressure moving in from Texas to bring snow and sleet to the Carolinas Friday.
Models keep snow in the forecast for areas to the north. The primary concern in Charlotte and the southern portions of our viewing area will be sleet or even freezing rain. Precipitation should begin in the mountains in the late morning, then move into Mecklenburg county shortly after noon, then come to an end in the early evening hours. This system will move in and out very quickly, meaning that large accumulations of any winter precipitation are unlikely, but bridges and overpasses could become slick for your afternoon commute, so use caution on the roads.
The primary ingredient missing from our last storm system that had the potential to bring snow was the cold air. We were trying to play catch-up until the last minute. As a result, we only saw a trace of snow. This time, the moisture will be the deciding factor.
Highs Friday are only expected to make it into the low to mid 30s, but the system moving in isn't carrying large amounts of moisture with it. Precipitation totals of more than a tenth of an inch are very unlikely outside the high country. However, that could still be enough for black ice to form through Friday evening.
