For the second time in three days, all local schools are closed Wednesday due to inclement weather.
West Morris Central originally called for a two-hour delayed opening Tuesday night, but made its final decision to close the high school just before 5 a.m. Wednesday morning.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie declared a state of emergency before a single flake had fallen Tuesday night in anticipation of a storm forecasted to bring as much as 10 inches of snow to the area.
All local schools were closed Monday as well due to snow.
The forecast predicts up to 10 inches of snowfall, mixed with some ice, between Tuesday night and Wednesday afternoon. If the forecast is true, that will give Washington Township nearly two feet of snow in a single week.
This is the fifth snow day for the K-8 district and fourth for the regional district. Each district allotted four for the entire school year.
