The threat of accumulating snow and ice has propelled the Cherokee County School District to cancel classes on Monday.

The district announced Sunday evening that it will cancel classes for students and close offices on Monday. Students and staff were set to return to school on Monday from the winter break. 

Cherokee County and the cities of Canton, Holly Springs and Woodstock government offices will delay opening until 10 a.m. Monday.  

A winter weather advisory remains in effect until noon Monday for Woodstock and Cherokee County, according to the National Weather Service. Rain, sleet and snow are expected to change over to all snow after 4 a.m. Monday. 

Wind chills are expected to drop to as low as 15 degrees below zero Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning, NWS states.

Along with the wind chill, winds out of the northwest will range between 15 and 20 miles per hour, with gusts reaching 40 miles per hour. This could not only make driving difficult, but could also result in power outages and hypothermia.

Monday's high will hover around 27 degrees while the low is expected to be around 5 degrees. Tuesday's weather won't be any warmer, as the highs will top out in the mid 20's and the lows will bottom out at 13. 

Compared to Monday and Tuesday, Wednesday could be feel relatively balmy. Expect sunny skies with highs around 40 and lows around 25.

I guess there was a blizzard in the northern part of the county?? I saw no snow and next to no ice here in Holly Springs.. I guess this is more of covering for liability issues

Not to mention the several reports of ice patches on main and surface streets.
