(Updated at 8:45 a.m. Friday) With no more snow expected but roads still a mess, D.C. Public Schools are closed again Friday.

D.C. government offices and federal offices are opening on a two-hour delay.

School officials announced Thursday night that schools would be closed a second day in a row, to the dismay of some locals.

“I just heard a million parents screaming. I didn’t know what was happening until I realized DCPS closed schools again tomorrow. #SnowDayTwo,” Twitter user @Nevin Martell wrote.

Other locals praised the decision. “Thank you For the notification. Good call!!!” Facebook user Nelson F. Lopez wrote on the DCPS page.

The forecast today calls for a wind chill as low as 6 degrees, and partly cloudy skies.

An official Cold Emergency is in effect. Call 211 for information on warming shelters and other government services. To request shelter for someone homeless, call 211 or email [email protected].

Trash and recycling pickup is scheduled for today but may be discontinued if road conditions are too poor, according to the mayor’s office.

Department of Parks and Recreation facilities will open on a modified schedule, with most aquatic centers opening at 10:30 a.m. For detailed information, see the department’s website.
