Baby, It's Getting Cold Outside

Overnight lows around 11 degrees are forecast in the Charlotte area tonight as a blast of wintry weather reaches the region. Wind gusts up to 40 mph will make it feel even colder.

“Wind chills will be down in the low single numbers. They could actually reach zero in parts of western North Carolina, including the Charlotte area,” says John Tomko of the National Weather Service.

Thursday’s temperatures are not expected to emerge from the 20s in the Charlotte area, but a gradual warm-up is forecast for the weekend.
