Winter precipitation is again falling upon portions of East Texas. Rain, drizzle, freezing rain, and even sleet are a possibility through at least tomorrow (Thursday) afternoon. Because of that threat, some East Texas school districts are taking proactive measures and either delaying the start of or canceling classes together for Thursday.

Currently our western, northern, and many central counties in East Texas are under a Winter Weather Advisory until Thursday at 6 p.m. A Winter Weather Advisory was issued by the National Weather Service because of the potential of freezing rain through tomorrow. Accumulation in some areas could be up to two-tenths of an inch. The affected counties are Anderson, Henderson, Van Zandt, Rains, Smith, Wood, Upshur, Wood, Titus, Franklin, and Delta counties in East Texas.

Because there are many students that take rural roads to get to school some East Texas school districts have already dismissed students early for the day and have either announced a delayed start for tomorrow or have canceled classes altogether for Thursday, February 24.
