After snow, slick roads impact school, sports schedules

Published: 2014-01-21 09:42:00
Updated: 2014-01-22 09:01:54

Jan 22, 2014

Snow fell across the HighSchoolOT.com coverage area on Tuesday evening, and as temperatures fell into the teens and twenties overnight, some icy conditions developed on area roadways.

As a result, many school systems have decided to either close or delay their openings.

Spots in Franklin, Nash, Edgecombe and Wilson counties saw the most snow during the late-evening hours, WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner said.

No issues were being reported at 5:30 a.m., although temperatures will continue to fall until mid-morning, settling in the teens across much of the area. Temperatures were in the low 20s at 5:30, and wind chills made it feel like the upper teens.

"We're not seeing any big problems, and parts of Wake County and the western Triangle should be in good shape," WRAL's Brian Shrader said. "Despite that, take it easy and just slow down during the morning commute. If it looks wet, assume it's frozen."

Daytime highs Wednesday will only climb into the upper 20s, so wet roadways have the potential to remain slick throughout the day.

The weather has also impacted high school sports schedules.

Many school systems canceled after school activities on Tuesday in anticipation of the snow, and if schools are closed on Wednesday, those schools won't be participating in events on Wednesday evening.

To report a postponement, send an e-mail to highschoolot@wral.com or call (919) 821-8660.
