Don't expect too much; we're not likely to have a White Christmas, but there is a chance that we will get some snow Friday night.  It will definitely feel like winter this weekend with daytime highs only in the 40s and nighttime lows near the 20-degree mark; in fact, some areas could see temps in the teens Monday and Wednesday  mornings.  

The last White Christmas in Lincolnton was in 2010 when some areas got as much as six inches--but some of that snow happened late in the day and on Sunday after Christmas on Saturday. It actually rained a good part of Christmas Day in Lincolnton and eastward before changing over.  Before 2010, our last White Christmas (with any significant amount of snow) was way back in 1947.  

What precipitation occurs is likely to be over and done before Saturday's Cherryville and Cat Square parades, but with the temp only expected to reach 45, if you're going, bundle up.  

Now here's the forecast from the National Weather Service:
