School officials aren't making a prediction about tomorrow, but snow watch veterans know it's likely that at least a one-hour or two-delay will be announced. The thought of high school students driving themselves to class as snow is falling and just as the sun is rising isn't a pleasant thought.

Year-round students would make it up on a Saturday.
Wake says it will make a decision about Thursday by 10 p.m. tonight.
