CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — A cold front has sent temperatures plunging across North Carolina and added a preview of winter with a coating of snow in some locations.

The National Weather Service reported snow flurries as far east as the Research Triangle area Tuesday night. There were more reports of rain and snow across the mountains.

An arctic cold front descended on the state, creating gusty winds and falling temperatures. Combined with an upper level disturbance coming from the west, the rain was expected to transition into snow before ending Tuesday night.

Very little accumulation is expected.

Once the front passes, highs Wednesday will linger in the 40s. Lows Wednesday night are expected to dip into the 20s.
