Sunny for most, First Alert for mountains

WBTV Monday morning weather forecast

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Today will be a classic winter day. For most of the WBTV viewing area, that means bright sunny skies and cool temperatures. For the mountains, that means snow showers.

There’s a First Alert this morning for the mountains above 3,500 ft. 1-3″ in of snow will be possible. For the ski resorts, this is great news! For anyone visiting the mountains for MLK weekend you may not be used to driving in the snow... or on mountain roads.

This First Alert just means to be extra careful and take it easy up there. Highs won’t make it far above freezing in the mountains. Farther east, we will be closer to 50.

Tuesday and Wednesday will be sunny to partly cloudy with highs in the mid 50s.

Thursday and Friday bring a little better chance for showers. As of now, the chance stands at 20% on Thursday and 30% on Friday. Highs will be in the mid 50s.

The weekend looks nice but chilly again. Highs will be in the low 50s on Saturday and the upper 40s on Sunday.

Make it a great day!
