Wintry mix leads to school cancellations


A wintry mix of snow and rain overnight Friday and Saturday contributed to poor road conditions over the weekend.

The seasonal barrage continued today with a dusting of snow that covered the already compromised county roadways and resulted in the cancellation of all schools in the county as well as Ridgemont and West Liberty-Salem.

Most of the local schools are not in session next week because of Christmas and New Year’s, and return to classes in 2014.

Light snow is expected to continue throughout tonight and into Tuesday. Temperatures are expected to remain in the low 30s throughout the week, with rain coming Friday and a warmup of near 50 degrees. Rain is expected to change to a light mixture of wintry precipitation into the evening, with rain continuing Saturday. More snow is expected Sunday night.
