While every public school district in the Yakima Valley has canceled at least one day due to snow/ice, some have had to more than others, with only a single district still holding a built-in day to keep from having to extend the school year later this summer.
Well, we've got more snow in the forecast for the Yakima Valley. The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for our area that begins at 4 a.m. Thursday (Feb. 14), and remains in effect until 10 Thursday night.
