    There were a few flakes this afternoon in Myrtle Grove. I didn’t see any flurries but random flakes floated down when I was in the store parking lot.

    >>Will we know tonight?

    Don’t know. If any of the area schools are closed, we will post it on the front page immediately after it is announced.

    Based upon current conditions, I would expect school to be in session for Escambia and Santa Rosa counties in Florida. In Escambia Alabama, I would say it’s definitely a wait and see at this point.
