Spring today, snow tomorrow

Spring today, snow tomorrow. Hi everyone, this is Paul Cameron in the WBTV Newsroom, getting ready for tonight's 11:00 newscast. We were in the low 60's today. Tomorrow, we're talking a 30-degree drop and snow, yes, snow to cover the Carolinas from the Piedmont to the beaches. Expectations are up to ten inches of snow for the coast while Charlotte could see 1"-2". Eric Thomas says we could see flakes flying by tomorrow afternoon.

And don't forget to download the WBTV Weather app for your smartphone. Here is a link to both iPhone and Android apps: <http://bit.ly/1gkKrxX>

City Council voted tonight to spend up to $12-million dollars on phase 2 of the City Lynx Gold Line. That's the streetcar project through Uptown. The city will also apply for a grant from the federal government.

This time around, there is a true bill of indictment against CMPD Officer Randall Kerrick for shooting an unarmed man ten times. Last week, a grand jury heard from two witnesses and failed to return an indictment. Late this afternoon, a new grand jury heard testimony from four witnesses. The indictment means there is enough evidence to take Kerrick to trial on voluntary manslaughter charges.

Did you catch Governor Pat McCrory on the CBS Evening News tonight? He was asked about North Carolina's dwindling unemployment rate. Gov. McCrory said his get tough stance on unemployment benefits is putting more North Carolinians back to work.

And our trending question tonight is about the snow and where you get your weather news. Join Molly Grantham, Eric Thomas and me for WBTV News at 11:00 in just a few minutes!
