Here's how you can share your winter weather photos with WCNC Charlotte

You can now share photos and videos of news spotted in your neighborhood right in the WCNC Charlotte app, through a new feature called "Near Me."

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — As winter weather hits the Carolinas, WCNC Charlotte wants to make it easy to share photos and videos you take so the news team can feature your content on-air and online.

If you want to text us a photo or video, send it to 704-329-3600 and make sure to tell us where you took and your name so we can give you credit.

If you're out and about and you see weather near you, just open the WCNC Charlotte app and send it out.
