Upwards of 4.5" of snow and sleet fell across North Carolina

A trace to 4.5" of snow and sleet fell across the area

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — For the second weekend in a row, we have had snow and sleet accumulations across the area. This time, the sleet and snow added up a little further east than usual. Huntersville, Charlotte, Concord, and Salisbury as just a few locations that had 0.1-0.5" of sleet and snow accumulations that are factored together.

This was all associated with a passing low-pressure system followed by a cold front. A lot of the snow and sleet that fell melted on contact and but it had a better time sticking for those who were in the Winter Storm Warning (Alexander, Ashe, Avery, Burke, Catawba, Caldwell, and Watauga County)

Here is a look at the highest snow/sleet totals reported to the National Weather Service:
