Many area schools closed due to snow, ice

January 20th, 2009 by Staff Report in Local - Breaking News

Snow and cold weather have caused dozens of school systems to close in the eastern half of Tennessee as drivers in the region battled slick roads.

Enough snow fell Monday that school systems canceled classes on the Cumberland Plateau, up the Tennessee Valley from just north of Chattanooga and in the mountain region of East Tennessee.

A light snowfall resulted in traffic crashes and delays as the work week revved up tosday, following the Martin Luther King Junior holiday.

More snow showers were forecast for today in East Tennessee, likely resulting in additional accumulations of less than a half-inch.
