There were school and business closings and cancellations, but otherwise no major incidents have been reported as the leading edge of a winter storm began tracking through Lincoln County Weds. morning. Snowfall is forecast to become heavier as the day progresses, falling at the rate of 1-2 inches per hour at times, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

Perhaps the most dangerous aspect of this storm is the possibility that coastal temperatures are forecast to creep up close to the 32-degree mark just as the heavy snowfall chugs through the area during the evening commute.
