Commerce area residents awakened to a five-inch blanket of snow at 27 degrees Monday morning.
The storm met the predictions of the National Weather Service, virtually shutting down business and nonessential government services. All area schools are closed.
Five inches of snow blanketed downtown Commerce at 7:45 a.m. Roads were passable, but by 8:15, sleet was falling. Officials warn that sleet, on top of the snow, will make roads more dangerous as the day passes.
