UPDATE: Level 2 Snow Emergency in Vinton County, Level 1 in Jackson County

The first major winter storm of the season has dumped approximately six inches of snow on Jackson County and five inches on Vinton County.

The Vinton County Sheriff's Office had declared a Level 3 Snow Emergency for the first part of Friday, which means that all roads were closed to non-essential motor-vehicle travel. However, at 11 a.m., Vinton County was downgraded to a Level 2 Snow Emergency, which means roads are hazardous and only necessary travel is advised.

In Jackson County, a Level One Snow Emergency remains in effect. Level One means that roads (township and county, mainly secondary) are hazardous with the possibility of blowing and drifting snow. Roads are icy and drivers should use caution, if they choose to drive.

A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until 6 p.m. Friday evening for area counties. Snow showers are likely to occur today, but there should be little or no additional snow accumulation, no more than an inch or two. Temperatures will likely not rise above the lower 20s.
