CMS: Schools closed Tuesday due to winter storm


Feb. 16 UPDATE The Town of Cornelius will close this afternoon at 3:30, but public works employees will be on call into the night.

The National Weather Service says there is a 30 percent chance of snow in Cornelius, mainly after 5 pm, with total daytime accumulation of less than half an inch.

The town is pre-treating problem areas on roads with brine. There is one truck equipped with a brine spreader. Four other trucks are available for help with town streets but little accumulation is anticipated.

The Weather Service calls for snow, freezing rain, and sleet before 4 am, then freezing rain likely between 4 am and 5 am.

Most businesses said they are staying open today, although banks and the Post Office are closed because of the President’s Day holiday.

Lake Norman Chrysler Jeep Dodge will close at 6 pm today, and reopen later than usual Tuesday, at 10 am. The North Mecklenburg Senior Center in Huntersville is closing at 3 pm today and will delay opening Tuesday until 10:30 am.
