Schools on a Two-Hour Delay Wednesday

Most schools on the South Fork will have a delayed opening Wednesday morning due to the icy road conditions expected for the morning commute. 

The National Weather Service said in a statement issued at about 8:30 p.m. that below freezing temperatures will turn slush on the roads to black ice overnight. The low Tuesday night will be around 23, with wind chill values of between 15 and 20.

The East Hampton Town police warned motorists through its social media accounts that, "Dropping temperatures through the evening will freeze standing water causing hazardous, slippery conditions on roads and walkways." 

The Amagansett, Bridgehampton, East Hampton, Montauk, Springs, and Southampton School Districts will start classes two hours later than usual on Wednesday morning. The Ross School is also on a two-hour delay. 

Wednesday will bring scattered snow showers, mainly after noon. It will be mostly cloudy with a high near 31.
