Snow showers expected to reach Mecklenburg late Tuesday afternoon prompted the county school division to release students at 1 p.m., instead of their usual dismissal at 3:35 p.m. The forecast also forced the postponement of monthly meetings for Clarksville Town Council and the Mecklenburg County School Board.

The National Weather Service said periods of snow, beginning late Tuesday afternoon, were expected to cause travel difficulties, including slippery roads and limited visibility.

As of early Tuesday afternoon, Mecklenburg County schools had not decided whether to close or delay schools on Wednesday. However, the National Weather Service predicted that the area would see “wind chills between zero and five below due to a combination of gusty north winds and cold temperatures.”

Clarksville Town Council rescheduled its meeting from Jan. 21 at 7:30 p.m. to Jan. 28 at 7:30 p.m. The town’s public hearing on the rezoning of newly annexed properties was also moved to Jan. 28 at 7:30 p.m.

The School Board normally would meet Monday, Jan. 20, but the date was changed to Jan. 21 in recognition of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. The inclement weather has now pushed that date back to Thursday, Jan. 30. The School Board meeting will gather at Clarksville Elementary School beginning at 5 p.m, with the first order of business being the Board’s annual reorganization. That will be followed by a ribbon cutting for the new wing at Clarksville Elementary School at 6:30 p.m., and the full board meeting at 7 p.m.
