It may have felt more like spring than winter over the past few weeks, but a winter storm brought the region its first snowfall of the new year on Monday.
The heavy snowfall made for dangerous road conditions in some areas Monday morning, and knocked out power to hundreds of people across Washington County. On average, the National Weather Service in Morristown estimated Washington County received 1.9 inches of snow, with about 1.5 inches falling in Johnson City.
Overnight, snow melt will refreeze as temperatures drop below freezing, which could lead to black ice on untreated roads, bridges and sidewalks. NWS Morristown urged drivers to be careful if they’re on the roads Monday night and Tuesday morning.
Here are some images captured by Johnson City Press readers from Monday’s snowfall.
