PREVIOUS STORY: The first snow of the season has made its way into the Tennessee Valley.

Many schools are closing early Friday, and people are bundling up to keep warm.

Areas to the south and east of Chattanooga are expected to see the most snow.

The Georgia State Patrol is asking everyone in Dalton to stay off the roads.  The snow is sticking and making driving very hazardous.

In McCaysville, the roads are getting worse by the minute, so the Fannin County Sheriff's Office is also asking people to stay off the roads.

Roads in Chatsworth are becoming messy too.  GDOT is working hard to keep the roads open.

In Tennessee, Benton roads are driveable, but still, drive with caution.

Channel 3 has crews in North Georgia covering this winter event:

Dalton, GA, is seeing a pretty good amount of the white stuff.

Snow is also falling at Channel 3's Share Your Christmas™ food drive in Dalton.
