WILKES COUNTY, N.C. -- Snow started falling in Wilkes County before 10:00 Friday morning.

The western region of the state is expected to see the most of the snowfall as the system works its way across the state.

Most local schools in Wilkes and surrounding counties closed by 12:30 p.m. and all after school activities were canceled.

Wilkes County Emergency Services told us they have one extra crew working during the day, but they're expecting the worst overnight.

"In the western part of Wilkes its already getting white and the roads are a bit slushy. But in Wilkes in town the roads are just wet at this point so we're monitoring that and if things change then we may change our operational procedures,” said Edwards Wilkes, EMS director.

Crews are expecting things to get worse as the day goes on and temps continue to drop. This area is expecting at least four inches of snow as this storm passes through.
