Temperatures to tumble across North Carolina

CHARLOTTE (AP) — A cold front approaching North Carolina is about to give the state an early dose of winter.
The National Weather Service said an arctic cold front will descend on the state Tuesday, leading to gusty winds and falling temperatures.
Combined with an upper level disturbance coming from the west, there is a chance that rain will change to snow before the precipitation ends Tuesday night.
Forecasters say if there is a changeover, there will be very little accumulation because temperatures will stay above freezing and the precipitation won’t last very long.
What few snowflakes may fall are expected anywhere between northeastern counties and part of the North Carolina piedmont.
Once the front passes, highs Wednesday will linger in the 40s.
