Warmer temperatures provide an assist with some melting as Durham digs out after a winter storm dumped as much as 10 inches in parts of the county.

Students in central North Carolina will get a third snow day as ice coats roads across the state, making travel dangerous.

School systems announced Thursday that they would be closed on Friday after a winter storm that dumped nearly a foot of snow in some areas, which quickly became ice across roads, bridges and overpasses.

In the Triangle, Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools and Durham County Schools were the first to announce they would be closed on Friday.

School closings:

▪ Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools

▪ Cumberland County Schools, 2-hour delay

▪ Durham County Schools

▪ Franklin County Schools

▪ Johnston County Schools

▪ Orange County Schools

▪ Wake County Schools
