Snow fell briefly across the county Saturday as residents got a wintry midmorning treat. The shower dropped heavy snow for a little less than an hour in some areas. The photos show farm fields dusted with white off Jones Road near Centenary Church Road. More winter weather is predicted to arrive, with some forecasts predicting snow to begin falling tonight — much to the delight of students, and to the chagrin of school administrators (see superintendent’s column on 2D). The National Weather Service is watching a pair of weather systems that are expected to bring snow to parts of the state.
