After snowfall, Greenwich Public Schools to have a two hour delay, 10.5 inches of snow estimated

Those hoping for a snow day on Wednesday will be sorely disappointed as Greenwich Public Schools will be open but have a two-hour delayed opening.

Check out the very latest about the snow from Hersam Acorn Radio at Greenwich-post.com.

Cold temperatures and strong winds are still an issue for Wednesday morning. A wind chill advisory is in effect for Southwest Connecticut on Wednesday, making it feel like it could be 20 degrees below zero, but the winter storm warning in effect for the region expired at 6 a.m. Greenwich received more snow than originally forecast but not as much as the 14 inches that were feared.

Estimates have Greenwich receiving between 10.5 and 11 inches after the snow. Greenwich Department of Public Works crews have been up all night working on the roads to clear them and buses will be able to run, meaning there will be no cancelation of school during the middle of mid term examinations. Classes were dismissed early on Tuesday.

Despite the snow coming in heavier than the six inches that were initially forecast, Greenwich did not have any issues with power during the storm. Connecticut Light and Power did not report any issues during the peak of the storm Tuesday night and everything was in order on Wednesday morning.

Drivers were urged to take their time getting to work and other places on Wednesday. While roads have been plowed, people should proceed with caution. Metro North will be running a full schedule on Wednesday, but there could be delays.
