Brunswick County Schools will operate on a two-hour delay for both students and staff Thursday, Jan. 18, based on National Weather Service predictions and Gov. Roy Cooper’s State of Emergency declaration.

“Please keep in mind that Brunswick County covers a lot of ground and that roads in one part of the county may be fine while on the other side of the county they can be dangerous,” district spokesman Daniel Seamans said.

Any other schedule changes prompted by the weather will be announced about 6 a.m. Thursday, Seamans said.

The National Weather Service office in Wilmington said it received a few reports of sleet and a few flakes, but nothing of significance as of 2 p.m. Wednesday.

Counties along the coast in North and South Carolina probably will not see any snow until after sunset Wednesday, NWS meteorologist Reid Hawkins said.

Rain should be changing to snow in the region west of Interstate 95 by Wednesday night. Hawkins said snowfall would end by 3 a.m. along the coast and before midnight in areas west of I-95.
