I was looking at the graph that one of the previous posters showing high/avg/lows over the last year...boy am I in for it!! I grew up and have been living in So Cal for my entire life (The Valley, no less!) and am about to embark on my journey to Charlotte in a few days for my career. I don't even own a proper "winter coat". Looks like that will be my first purchase this weekend. Please, Charlotte Winter, have mercy!!

Are you trying to win an Academy Award before leaving Cali? You probably won't like the summer heat and humidity here over the winter weather which isn't bad at at all.

The good news is the cold doesn't stick around too long. By late February it's mainly just cold at night. Winters in Charlotte are pronounced enough to feel genuine, but short enough they don't wear you out.

Spending my 2nd Winter here after living in SoFla for over 40 years, I'm guilty again of getting a jump start on the season. We actually lit our fireplace last night. We had leftover wood, so we figured; why not? I love the sounds and smells!

This might be funny, since I'm from Illinois, but this is the first house (here in CLT) that we have with a fireplace! Looking forward to lighting it up later this year

While your picking up your new coat don't forget an ice scraper and always keep an umbrella in the car. Take it from a So Cal Gal who tried to melt her icy windshield with the wiper fluid, DH laughed at me and I had a new toy when I got home from work, an ice scraper!

I just want it to be cold at some point for more than a day. I know it snows a bit here. When does that usually happen?

Generally if we have snow that will stick, it happens in the first 3 weeks in January. There have been some cases of flurries coming down before Thanksgiving and as late as April. (I've seen both, but only once or twice in the 30+ years I have been here)

Most likely if we don't see snow by the end of February, there isn't going to be any snow. I remember that once we went for a span of 4-5 years without any. Chances for seeing some snow start to go up greatly if you live closer to I-40 and North due to the rise in elevation. I used to routinely go day skiing at Beech Mtn on their week day specials, and there have been many times that it would be raining when I left in Charlotte, and I was seeing snow around 60 miles N of CLT.
