I-81 shut down as snow and mix arrives in area


PLAINS TOWNSHIP, LUZERNE COUNTY (WOLF) -- With less than a week until Thanksgiving, our area got a taste of snow.

Snowflakes were falling around 11 p.m. on Sunday in Plains Township.

A light dusting was spotted on dirt surfaces along Highway 315 and near Bear Creek Blvd., but was not sticking much to the roads.

Some sleet was also falling in the area just minutes before.

Around 1:30 a.m., fire crews were dispatched to shut down I-81 in the Delano area of Schuylkill County after reports of tractor-trailer accidents.

Some areas have already seen snowflakes this season. FOX56 spotted snow in the Bear Creek area on November 7, Election Day.
