CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - As we continue to recover from our first winter storm that brought snow and ice to the area Sunday, another chance for wintry weather is on our doorstep.

  • Patchy black ice tonight-tomorrow morning
  • First Alert Thursday: Scattered showers likely, mountain snow possible
  • First Alert Friday-Saturday: Next best chance for wintry weather

Icy spots will be a concern overnight into Wednesday morning, as low temperatures cool into the 20s.

Sunny skies and well-above freezing temperatures helped to melt lingering snow and ice off the roads today, but below-freezing temperatures overnight will lead to additional black ice concerns. Be cautious as you head out on any untreated sidewalks and roads through Wednesday morning. As clouds filter overhead, highs will top out in the mid 50s tomorrow before our next cold front moves in.

Confidence continues to grow that a mix of snow, sleet, and possibly freezing rain, impacts the area in this time frame. An area of low pressure developing along the aforementioned front will allow us the opportunity for additional precipitation with below-freezing temperatures already in place.

Snow showers to a wintry mix are possible in the Carolinas for Friday, with high temperatures ranging from the 30s in the piedmont, to 20s in the mountains. At this point, snow showers are expected to taper off Friday night into early Saturday morning. The exact timing and impacts are still questionable, so make sure you stay tuned to the latest WBTV weather forecast.

The weekend is looking to remain cold, with high temperatures in the mid-30s for the piedmont, and upper 20s in the mountains for Saturday. Sunday will feature partly cloudy skies, with high temperatures in the lower 40s for the piedmont, and lower 30s in the mountains.
