Snow day, take two! Charlottesville and Albemarle schools have another day off, and it may have something to do with the fact that Domion Power has yet to restore electricity to 14,978 customers in the county and 4,697 in the city as of 7 am.

Warming temperatures today into the rest of the week mean the snow won’t stick around long. Thursday will be mostly sunny with highs in the lower 40s, according to the National Weather Service. Tonight, temps will drop down into the mid 20s, but we’ll see them rise into the upper 40s Friday and break 50 Saturday.

Here’s a list of local closures and delays for Thursday:

  • Albemarle County Schools
  • Augusta County Schools; but essential personnel 8:00, office 10:00
  • Charlottesville Catholic School
  • Charlottesville Circuit Court, 2-hour delay
  • Charlottesville City Schools
  • Charlottesville Waldorf School
  • Covenant School
  • Fluvanna County Schools (Code 3)
  • James Madison University
  • Louisa County Schools
  • Meals on Wheels (Charlottesville and Albemarle)
  • Nelson County Schools
  • Tandem Friends School
  • Village School
