Schools on two-hour delay Tues., Jan. 17

Date:

Washoe County schools will be on a two-hour delay tomorrow, Tuesday. School officials Monday evening said winter storm activity is prompting the delay.

“Due to hazardous weather and road conditions, there will be a two-hour delay at all schools (including Incline Village) for Tuesday, Jan. 17.,” district spokesperson Megan Downs said in a press statement. “Classes will begin two hours later, and winter bus stops are in effect.”

The National Weather Service said snowfall has been 2 to 5 inches in the valleys and up to 8 inches in foothill locations.

Officials said to check road conditions before traveling at nvroads.com or 1-877-NV-ROADS.

The next winter storm will bring additional moderate to heavy snowfall to the Sierra through Monday evening with accumulating snow making it over into western Nevada valleys as well. Heaviest snow amounts are expected in the eastern Sierra from Lake Tahoe southward to Mammoth Lakes with respectable snow amounts possible across western Nevada. While the amounts will vary depending on the exact track of the storm, current projections show at least 1 to 3 inches of snow from I-80 southward, with bands of heavier snow amounts of 3 to 6 inches possible near or south of Highway 50. Foothill locations could see a bit more. For travel Monday, including the morning and evening commutes, plan additional time to reach your destination. Check with NDOT and Caltrans for the latest road conditions.
