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.
