Chattooga County saw another round of winter weather that moved in late Thursday afternoon.  Snow began to fall in some areas shortly after 4 PM and by early evening snow and sleet had spread throughout the area. 

There were no major problems such as road closings or power outages reported Thursday evening, however travel may be tricky on Friday morning.  The Georgia DOT was out on Thursday evening with salt trucks and snow plows on state highways in the county.  Chattooga County Commissioner Jason Winters told AM 1180 that crews from Public Works would be working on Thursday evening and Friday morning to take care of icy conditions on county roadways.

While the temperature hovered around or above freezing in the valley areas of Chattooga County, it remained below freezing in the higher elevations.  The National Weather Service did not issue a Winter Weather Advisory for Chattooga County until 6:22 PM on Thursday evening.  That advisory remains in affect until 8 AM Friday.  Just to the west in DeKalb County, Alabama the National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Warning in affect until noon (Central Time) on Friday.

The possibility of icy conditions on county roads prompted the Chattooga County Board School system to issue a two hour delay for county schools Friday morning.  Johnny Worsham with the Chattooga County School system told AM 1180 that school officials would assess the situation on Friday morning.  There was no word from Trion Schools about any delays or cancellations.
