The Queen City saw less than 3 inches of snowfall, while snow came down even heavier north and west of Charlotte. In Asheboro, North Carolina animals at the North Carolina Zoo got a 'snow day' on Monday. Although - the polar bears and arctic foxes looked right at home!

This storm system is not quite done yet, but the bulk of the precipitation has come to an end.

A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for parts of the region through Monday afternoon.
