CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The wintry precipitation came to an end across the entire area by nighttime on Friday.

The storm moved into the Charlotte region around 8 a.m. Scattered sleet showers affected parts of the area through the lunch hour, then we got a break.

A round of heavier sleet and freezing rain hit the Charlotte area between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m., and began to move into Monroe and Union County around 5 p.m.

The Charlotte area will not climb above freezing through mid-morning on Saturday, so expect lots of ice to stick around.

The entire area, including Charlotte, is under a Winter Weather Advisory through noon on Saturday. While no additional precipitation will fall, roads will remain slick and travel conditions treacherous.
