The district is among many in Metro Detroit to close on Friday, including nearby districts in Royal Oak, Berkley and Oak Park, according to clickondetroit.com.
A Winter Weather Advisory expires at 7 p.m. Friday after a low-pressure system moved into southeastern Michigan overnight, bringing the threat of snow with it.
While Ferndale was only forecasted to receive between two and four inches overnight, areas north of M-59 could see up to eight inches of snow, the National Weather Service says.
The snow will continue to fall until 10 a.m. with the high reaching 31 degrees today. A total daytime accumulation of one to three inches is possible.
