I found this climate snapshot for Greensboro/Winston-Salem. It says the avg annual snowfall is about 9 inches (altogether). I'm sure you could find similar things by searching the right terms.
Understand that walloped could be 3 inches with ice. But, being from NY. You will scratch your head when schools close with 2 inches. Or the snow storm that never happens. We have about 2 of those a year.

For young singles; Charlotte offers more in an urban way, but traffic sucks. There are several public and private higher education opportunities in Charlotte.

Greensboro also offers a lot, and traffic most certainly does not suck. NC A&T, Guilford Tech, UNC-G, Guilford College, Greensboro College, ECPI, there are lots of educational opportunities there as well.

With either city interracial relationships aren't frowned upon.

Greensboro offers a lot of outdoor type recreational opportunities. There are parks, hiking, biking trails all over the place. Downtown also offers bars, clubs, comedy places, etc. In addition to areas like Walker Street, or College Hill, Tate Street, etc. For around college age people to meet-up and hang out.

Both really good choices, depending upon what one's looking for? Charlotte's more Metro, where Greensboro's more chill and relaxed.
