Winter weather advisory for region: Snow expected tonight and Tuesday

The temperature in Charlotte Monday will hover just above freezing, with a high of 41 degrees and a low of 33.

Snow could be heavy at times and winds could gust up to 35 miles per hour, which could reduce visibility and make driving hard. Snow accumulation occurred mostly on dirt, grass, trees, and rooftops and was not accurately measurable.

The National Weather Service on Monday issued winter weather advisories for Orange, Ulster and Sullivan counties ahead of Tuesday's expected snowfall.

Wake County Public Schools, Durham Public Schools, Orange County Schools, Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools and Chatham County Schools released students early on Monday. Wind gusts of 40 miles per hour could cause areas of blowing and drifting snow during the day Wednesday.
