The City of Lincolnton and Lincoln County are preparing in advance of the Winter Storm expected this weekend. According to the National Weather Service, Lincolnton and Lincoln County can expect heavy mixed precipitation with snow and sleet accumulations and a glaze of ice.  The City of Lincolnton and Lincoln County may have between 8-12 inches of snow with some rain, sleet and freezing temperatures.  

Lincolnton and Lincoln County will be under a Winter Storm Watch from 7pm Saturday until Monday at 12noon. This could be upgraded to a Winter Storm Warning as conditions develop. We will continue to monitor the latest forecasts and post updates as necessary. Please continue to monitor the city website ( and social media ( for updates and alerts.

In preparation for the storm, Lincoln County Emergency Management held a briefing with leadership to coordinate response to the severe weather expected this weekend, and the Lincoln County Emergency Management Office is on stand-by. City of Lincolnton public work crews will have snow plows out when accumulation requires clearing the roads. Power outages are highly possible, and City of Lincolnton electric crews are prepared to restore power for city residents as quickly and safely as possible based on weather conditions. 

Residents are urged to prepare for snow and freezing temperatures and to stay home on Sunday as travel could become very difficult or even impossible. Road conditions could deteriorate as early as Saturday evening, with highway travel continuing to be impacted through early next week. Visibility may drop to less than a half mile during periods of heavy snow. Residents requiring non-emergency assistance should call the communications center at 704-735-8202.
