Back to winter and schools closed

Too cold to sit outside or taking a slide.

The lower temperatures that moved into the area Monday night also brought some snow and blustery wind — so much so that a low of 20 this morning translated to a wind chill of close to zero.

Floyd County Schools closed Tuesday and slick roads greeted those who had to get out in the morning.

As snows go, what fell is not a lot but it is enough to make things nasty.

The National Weather Service office in Blacksburg says the snow showers should end by 10 a.m. but the wind advisory extends to 4 p.m. and the temperature remains below freezing Tuesday with a low of 16.

Wednesday, however, is forecast to be in the lower 40s with an overnight low of 32 and in the high 40s and perhaps into the low 50s on Thursday for the first day of February.
