Snow is still falling over much of Maryland as Tuesday evening wears on, and snowy streets combined with below-zero wind chills could make for a slippery commute Wednesday morning. 

Anne Arundel Schools made the call just after 8 p.m. Tuesday night, making Wednesday the second snow day of the week.

Here's an updated list of closings and delays for Wednesday, Jan. 22:
  • School will be closed Wednesday for all students, with a Code Red in effect for employees, according to the AACPS website. Unit III employees should report for work as required.
  • Wednesday's board of education meeting has also been canceled. 
  • The Anne Arundel County government will open at 10 a.m. Wednesday, with a liberal leave policy in effect. All emergency personnel must report at the regular time.
  • Anne Arundel County senior centers and activity centers will be closed Wednesday, though the Pascal Senior Activity Center on 125 Dorsey Road in Glen Burnie will be open as a warming center from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

This post will be updated as more weather related delays and closings are announced.

As a reminder, here's how the school system generally makes the call on inclement weather closings and delays, and how they notify parents: 

  • Between 3 a.m. and 4:30 a.m.: School system Transportation Division crews are out assessing road conditions throughout the county, treating roads and school lots and consulting with state and county agencies on conditions.    
  • By 4:45 a.m., the superintendent or designee uses information gathered to make a determination about delaying, closing or opening schools on time
  • At around 4:50 a.m., media outlets are notified and email/text message notifications to parents and staff are sent.
  • About 30 minutes later, automated calls are made to an approved list.
