By Michael Addison - email

LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - Recapping what we know so far concerning this morning's weather conditions, 7 News has received reports of snowfall in parts of Allen, Beauregard, Vernon and Acadia Parishes.

The sheriff's departments in those parishes are not reporting any road closures at this time, but the situation is hazardous enough that officials have canceled class in several parishes.

All Beauregard Parish schools are closed Friday, but employees are asked to get to work as soon as conditions are favorable to drive.

All Vernon Parish schools are closed too.

As for Allen Parish, the school board says all of its schools will be closed, except, schools in Reeves and Kinder.

Calcasieu Parish schools are open Friday.

State government offices are closed in Vernon Parish.

At Fort Polk, Department of the Army civilians do not have to report for duty Friday, but all emergency and essential personnel are to report for work as scheduled.

Remember, you can stay on top of the weather, on your cell phone, iPhone and on the web at KPLCTV.com.

You can also send us your weather photos to Viewernet@kplctv.com..

Plus, check out some of the photos sent back by our very own Theresa Schmidt, Crystal Price, and Jason Belk as they covered the snow locally in the northern parts of our area. Look at the top right of this page for a photo slideshow.
