Students in Tucker County are getting the day off after an early season storm dumped up to six inches of snow in the mountainous northern West Virginia county.
School Superintendent Rick Hicks says Tuesday's storm created icy conditions in the county's higher elevations forcing officials to cancel classes on Wednesday.
Hicks says this is not the earliest schools have been closed because of snow.
Two years ago, the county received six inches of snow on October 24.
Although the National Weather Service says the county could receive up to three additional inches of snow Wednesday, Hicks expects classes to resume Thursday.
