2:45 PM: Here are some scenes from the snow around the Police Services Center.
12:30 PM: Despite receving what could be considered just a "dusting" of snow, road conditions in Dalton at this hour are dangerous. Snow is sticking to roads in Dalton and making them very slippery, and some secondary roads are becoming treacherous. Traffic crashes were reported all over Dalton and Whitfield County caused by snowy conditions.
If at all possible, Dalton officials are urging drivers to avoid driving. If you absolutely must go out, slow down and leave plenty of distance between you and the vehicle in front. Remember that bridges will be icing more quickly than the roads, so use extra caution on bridges and overpasses. Use lower gears on hills. But again, if at all possible, please avoid driving.
Dug Gap Battle Road has been closed due to snowy conditions.
