Several School Systems Alter Schedule as “High Impact System” Set to Impact Area

Updated to include the decision for an early dismissal by MCPS.
According to the National Weather Service (NWS), a “high impact system” is set to impact the area today into Wednesday.

Per the NWS, “Flooding rains, coastal flooding, strong winds, and mountain wintry precipitation are all expected. Conditions deteriorate after dark as a brunt of the storm tracks from I-95 toward the Bay.”

Neighboring school systems in Prince George’s and Howard counties have already made the decision to close early, as well as Anne Arundel County, Calvert County, Harford County, and St. Mary’s County a little further out. At 8:34am, MCPS made the decision to dismiss early.

Heavy rain, strong winds (with the potential to cause power outages), and flooding are all concerns for the area this evening, so it’s important to be prepared for the commute if you must drive later on. We’ll keep you updated on any changes.
