— The threat of severe weather in the early morning hours has prompted the first of what will likely be several delays in school ioenings on Friday.

Blount County Schools will delay classes by two hours on Friday, in hopes that the anticipated line of storms has passed by then.

So far, no word from Jefferson County or any other nearby systems, except for Bibb County.

We'll update this story as more announcements are made.
