Schools to stay closed Thursday after snowstorm
While snow has tapered off, close to 1 foot has fallen across the region.
Thursday is another snow day for Westside-area students.
The Beaverton, Tigard-Tualatin and West Linn-Wilsonville school districts were among those announcing they will be closed Thursday, following a mammoth snowstorm that socked the region Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Public schools in Hillsboro, Lake Oswego and Portland will also be closed.
This will be the third snow day of the week for Beaverton and Tigard-Tualatin students. Schools were closed Monday after a smaller snowstorm impacted the area last Saturday, and classes were canceled Wednesday as well after the overnight snowfall.
The National Weather Service said between 6 inches and 15 inches of snow fell during the midweek snowstorm across the Portland area, with higher accumulations in the West Hills. The storm caused widespread traffic disruptions and power outages.
