Rowan-Salisbury Schools will have two-hour delay Wednesday morning

Staff report

SALISBURY — Predictions for freezing rain Wednesday morning have led Rowan-Salisbury Schools to call for a two-hour delay to the school day.

Staff members are being asked to report on a normal schedule or as soon as safely possible.

“We will continue to monitor the weather conditions throughout the night and will notify you as soon as possible should things change,” the school district said in an announcement Tuesday afternoon.

North Hills Christian School will be on a one-hour delay.

The National Weather Service office in Greenville, South Carolina, issued a winter weather advisory from midnight Tuesday to noon Wednesday for Rowan County and several other counties in the region.

A winter weather advisory means that periods of freezing rain could cause travel difficulties.

“Though less than a 10th of an inch of ice will accumulate,” the NWS said in its advisory, “this will be enough to cause some roadways and sidewalks to become slick, creating hazardous traveling conditions.”

The freezing rain is expected to come from the southwest. The overnight low was expected to be 30 degrees, and the high Wednesday could reach 49 later in the day.

The chance of precipitation Wednesday is 60 percent.
