7:25am – snowfall totals coming into the facebook page show a general 8-10 inches across most of the area from the snow yesterday and overnight.

Construction operations on 321 in Blowing Rock suspended today due to weather. Call 828-964-3260 for project information

8:25am from NCDOT –

Division 11( Allegheny, Ashe, Avery, Caldwell, Surry, Watauga, Wilkes and Yadkin counties) has 8-12 inches of snow. The snow had stopped, but it has resumed with the next front coming through. The primary routes are passable, but are partially covered. The secondary routes are covered, but we should make some headway today if the snow will stop since it is a good snow to push.

Boone Police remind motorist to watch out for crews as they clean the parking areas downtown.
