Schools Across Mid-Michigan Start Closing

Schools across mid-Michigan have started to close in the wake of a huge snow storm and freezing temperatures.

Schools started calling in their closes on Sunday afternoon, in the midst of a storm that's expected to drop 8 to 12 inches of snow across the region.

The large amount of snow will make it difficult for crews to clear the roads before buses start hitting the road early Monday morning.

The other problem is the cold. Temperatures are barely expected to break zero on Monday. The Stormtracker 6 weather team says wind chills are expected to reach -20 to -30 degrees.

That breaks the threshold that many districts have set for school closings. Ingham County superintendents, for example, agreed to call off school when the actual or wind chill temperatures reach -20. Their concern is for kids who have to wait outside for buses or who have to walk to school in the freezing temperatures.

Be sure to check back, as the list is constantly being updated as schools close. And stay tuned to 6 News for the latest on both the snow and the freezing temperatures.
