When is it Too Cold for School? Here’s what we found. Each school superintendent has to weigh a variety of weather, staffing and equipment factors before making the decision, and they have to face the public reaction as well.

During the severe cold, Metra plans to place speed restrictions on all its lines.

Frostbite possible within 30 minutes to exposed skin. If you need to head out, be sure to dress appropriately.

Oh by the way the National Weather Service says on Monday January 28th “Significant snow accumulations are possible”!
