Mountain Snow; Flakes Likely Sunday Night

As a storm system organizes late Sunday night into Monday, a mixed bag of precipitation will spread across the Carolinas. The Piedmont of NC including Charlotte and Raleigh will be all rain, and same for all of SC except for perhaps a small part of the Upstate in the mountains. This storm system will not linger for long, but could put down 1-3″ of snow in the highest elevations of NC. A  coating to an inch is expected in the mountains in general that are not the highest mountaintops.

A wintry mix is expected in the valleys and also the foothills surrounding the mountains. Momentary flakes cannot be ruled out across VA as the low pulls away and moves out to sea on Monday morning. Most of the activity is expected to occur late Sunday night into early Monday morning, around sunrise. But by noon, everything will be over. There could be some dustings across VA where the snow falls long enough.

This is not expected to be a high impact winter storm overall, but could be the beginning of a pattern of what could be to come this winter.
