Due to poor winter road conditions, Royal Oak Schools are closed on Thursday, Jan. 2.
A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until noon. Persistent light snow will continue through the morning, according to the National Weather Service.
The City of Royal Oak has declared a snow emergency Wednesday, meaning vehicles are to remain off city streets until plow trucks have gone through the area. "Once a snow emergency is called and plowing begins, it takes approximately 24-36 hours to plow all city streets, depending on how much snow has fallen," according to the city.
Drivers are urged to take their time and use caution. Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibility.
