CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) –
Heads up: Charlotte could be in store for another round of winter weather. A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for Wednesday night into Thursday morning.
There is a growing consensus, among a host of reliable computer models, that Charlotte and the surrounding areas could see a significant snow storm late Wednesday night and into Thursday morning.
There are still a couple scenarios that could drastically limit the amount of snow that falls across the region.
Let’s talk about those first – limiting factors:
1. Low tracks deeper south than the snowier scenario… limiting the amount of available moisture.
2 Low moves through faster before colder air, supporting snow arrives… leaving us with more rain than snow and greatly limiting snow amounts.
But again, a host of models are trying to build a snowy consensus.
Let’s talk about the SNOWY scenario.
1. Cold air, moisture and strong jet stream energy aloft come together late Wednesday night and Thursday morning.
2. This could result in a six to twelve hour window of heavy snowfall.
3. High-end snow amounts could be in the 3 to 5 inch range in the Charlotte area.
All the models show this system rapidly exiting the region by late Thursday morning.
Eric and Lyndsay will have the very latest forecast and model runs coming out this afternoon. They’ll have a complete update on air later today.
