Chattooga County has had a blast of artic weather for the past several days that included some snow and bittlerly cold temperatures.

For the past several years the area has experienced rather mild winters, but that trend seems to be broken with the 2009-2010 winter season.  Both area schools were dismissed early on Thursday of this week as snow began to fall and Friday saw slippery roads around Chattooga County.

Temperatures are expected to moderate and by mid – week we should see highs back in the 50’s.
