Winter Weather Impacts Area – Closings & Cancellations

rex3

UPDATED TUESDAY @ 5:40 A.M.

Winter weather continued to impact the WGEL listening area through Monday night.

An estimated 2 – 2.5 inches of snow fell Sunday into Monday. As of late Monday afternoon, most listeners were reporting between 6 and 6.5 inches of snow. The snow continued to fall through the night Monday, so final totals will be a bit higher than that.

The weather caused a great number of closings and cancellations, including most area schools.

Greenville Police and Bond County Sheriff’s Deputies provided assistance to a number of motorists Monday. They both report about a half-dozen cars that slid off the roadway. No injuries were reported. Authorities said due to conditions, several of the motorists had to simply leave the vehicles where they were until conditions improved enough to retrieve them.

While temperatures are expected to be cold Tuesday and Wednesday, sunny skies are expected.
