The Wake County school system is warning that it might not make a decision about Wednesday classes until early in the morning.

“If we have enough reliable information, the decision to cancel or delay school may be made the night before the snow day,” Wake says in a Facebook post this afternoon. “If the decision is made the night before, it will be made in time for the closing to be announced on the 11 p.m. news, whenever possible. In many cases, however, the decision is made the morning of the potential snow day. In this case, the decision is made no later than 4:45 a.m., whenever possible.”

Wake could opt to start school on schedule Wednesday but dismiss school early.
