With the official start of winter still 19 days away, many people got a quick taste of it Monday morning.

There was snow in the front yards of many homes on Dayton Mountain Highway and throughout Pikeville.

This wintry mix was enough to shut down schools in Bledsoe, Sequatchie and Grundy Counties Monday.

Viewers captured images of snow blanketing their decks and around their house before the morning commute. Submit your pictures and videos to our Viewer Weather Gallery here.

The good news is it did not disrupt the flow of traffic on the roads.

The snow just gave residents a preview of winter.

Winter officially begins with the Winter Solstice on Saturday, December 21.
