Today's strong storm system led to widespread flooding, numerous power outages, and hazardous travel conditions throughout our area. While those conditions are improving this evening, we are mindful that some continued flooding, debris in roadways, falling trees, and other hazards may continue overnight and into the early morning hours tomorrow. So that we can fully assess travel conditions tomorrow morning, and so that drivers have the benefit of improved visibility, Rutherford County Schools will operate on a two-hour delay on Wednesday, January 10.
The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Advisory and Flood Watch for Rutherford County, along with a Winter Weather Advisory in our northwesternmost communities, in anticipation of a strong storm system that will soon affect our area. Stormy weather is expected to develop overnight tonight, and conditions are expected to worsen throughout the day tomorrow.

Given the likelihood of flooding, downed trees, power outages, and hazardous travel conditions, Rutherford County Schools will observe a remote learning day for students and an optional teacher workday for school employees on Tuesday, January 9, 2024.
