Winter weather forecast, link to school closings

"Our current WBTV First Alert forecast is calling for 2" to 3" inches of accumulating snow in the Charlotte area. Scattered snow showers and squalls, combined with gusty winds, will cause blowing and drifting snow into the evening.

A winter storm warning is in effect over inland areas, but a winter weather advisory is posted along the coast.

Monday night: A 90 percent chance of snow, mainly before 11 p.m., low around 11.

A winter weather advisory had been issued Monday night for portions of West Virginia and Maryland.

Cold, arctic air will surge in behind the snow Monday night and Tuesday with temperatures barely reaching the low 20s Tuesday afternoon with wind chills in the single digits. "A period of snow is EXPECTED Wednesday morning across the Baltimore and Washington metro areas with around an inch accumulation on area roads".

Trump Says Won't Sign Immigration Bill Without Funding for Border Wall
Earlier on Thursday, Republicans in the House of Representatives told reporters there had been substantial progress toward a deal. On the other side, the White House risks angering Trump's base if it grants a path to citizenship for the DREAMers.

As of 4:30 a.m., rain has begun to change over to snow in the Charlotte-metro area.

Wednesday night, it will be clear with a low of 17 and a south southwest wind of 7 to 9 miles per hour, according to the weather service.

On Wednesday, the region should see partly sunny conditions, with a high near 27.

Temperatures will remain below freezing throughout the workweek, so the 5"-8" of snow that the Valley received during Friday's storm will not be going anywhere anytime soon. A daytime high of 21 degrees is in the forecast, with wind gusts expected to reach as high as 15 miles per hour.

Stay tuned on TV and online for more updates this evening and into tomorrow, and feel free to send us your pictures and reports. Tuesday's high is expected near 41 with the temperatures dropping throughout the day to a low around 12.
