A dusting of snow fell across the Charlotte region early Sunday, then quickly began to melt as the sun came out by midday.  

At Charlotte-Douglas Airport, some incoming flights were delayed due to the inclement weather. A "ground stop" issued by the FAA for Charlotte-bound flights Sunday morning was lifted shortly before 12:30 p.m. However, the FAA advised passengers to continue checking with their airlines about possible flight delays.

The National Weather Service posted a Freeze Warning for the Charlotte area, NC foothills and much of Upstate South Carolina from 10:00 p.m. Sunday until 10:00 a.m. Monday.
