Weather closes schools again

    Another 2-inches of snow, another round of closures for Adams County schools thanks to strong winds that caused drifting on county roads.
    Adams County was on a travel watch advisory this morning as county roads, particularly north and south roads, continue to drift. A watch means road conditions are threatening to public safety and only essential travel, such as to and from work and emergency situations, is recommended.
    Temperatures today and Wednesday are expected to reach about 40 degrees, climbing all the way to 52 degrees Thursday, with rain in the morning and thunderstorms likely in the afternoon. Temperatures are expected to stay above the freezing mark through Saturday, before dropping down to about 30 degrees Sunday.
    The National Weather Service stated there is an increased potential for flooding by Thursday as several factors combine to create a dangerous situation. With rain in the forecast Thursday, combined with the warmer temperatures increasing snowmelt, flooding is expected in low-lying areas, small streams, creeks and rivers.
