Cleveland County should see some snow over night from Friday to Saturday, but hefty accumulations aren’t expected, according to the National Weather Service.
The coast of North Carolina and eastern counties will see more accumulations, but Friday evening rain is expected to transition to snow later in the night and early morning hours in Cleveland County.
Meteorologist Robbie Munroe predicts the area will get a dusting to an inch of snow, but the system could change.
“There's quite a bit of uncertainty,” he said.
If the system slows or hovers over an area, the arrival of the storm could be later in the night when it’s colder which would mean less rain and more snow, he said.
The good news is, unlike the system that blew through Cleveland County earlier this month, ice is not anticipated, Munroe said, but snow on the ground could linger.
“It'll be cold behind the system with lows into the teens on Saturday and breezy so it’ll feel pretty chilly,” he said. “Daytime highs will be in the 30s, so the snow could stick around.”
Temperatures Friday are expected to reach the mid to upper 40s with lows in the mid 20s.
Saturday isn’t expected to get out of the 30s with lows in the teens. Both days will feel even colder because of the wind-chill factor, Munroe said.
