St. Tammany Parish offices will reopen Thursday at noon, a spokesman said Wednesday.

Parish offices have been closed since Tuesday due to the winter weather in the area. Opening at noon Thursday will allow the temperatures to rise high enough to melt ice on the roads, according to Ronnie Simpson, a parish spokesman. All employees should report for work at noon, Simpson said.

In addition, the Justice Center in Covington will reopen at 9 a.m. Thursday.
