Expected winter weather to close NC Zoo again

Posted: Updated:
ASHEBORO, N.C. -

A forecast of frozen precipitation has forced another shutdown of the North Carolina Zoo.

The zoo will be closed to the public on Friday. Zoo staffers are asked to report to work as usual on Friday. With temperatures predicted to reach into the 60s by Saturday, the zoo is expected to resume normal winter operating hours for the weekend.

At least twice in January, the zoo closed for a day because of bitter cold. On one of the two occasions, it remained closed for four days.

In February, a snowstorm kept the zoo closed for six days.
