Winter Weather Advisory times for C/SE MoCo now go from 3pm until midnight.
Surrounding and nearby counties are dropping like flies with Loudoun, Arlington, Carroll, Prince George’s, and Howard (I refer to them as our closing/delay twin) already calling for early dismissals.
With snow starting to stick in the later afternoon (2:30-4:30ish), it makes sense to play it safe. Everyone gets home before things get messy and we get a full day of school in.
I’m confident after school activities will be cancelled and I predict an early release for today. MCPS announced this morning that a decision will be made by 10am. I suspect it could come a little sooner.
An early release for MCPS means schools will close 2.5 hours before the regularly scheduled time.
Remember, the delay option on the app means early release for this prediction only.
