November Snow

The snowflakes are flying here in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky tonight. Already there is a good dusting in my backyard at Isom here in Letcher County. There is a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY in effect for Letcher and Harlan counties until 10am ET tomorrow (Friday) morning. An additional one to two inches is expected in the higher elevations in those counties, while an additional dusting to half-inch is espected in the valleys.

Just across the state line in Virginia, Buchanan, Dickenson, and Wise county schools are all under a two-hour delay for tomorrow. No word yet from other schools in the area at this time.

This snow is unusual for this part of November. Post your thoughts in the comments section. I will post more on the snow if needed.

UPDATE on Friday at 5:47am: Looks like at least an inch or so in my backyard. Many schools in the area are either closed or on a delay due to the snow. This includes Letcher County schools, which are CLOSED while Jenkins Independent is on a two-hour delay. Winter weather advisory continues until 10am. Roads are slick in many spots. Stay safe.

UPDATE: Jenkins Independent is now CLOSED.
