Another Round of Frigid Weather Leaves Most Area Schools Closed


Central Illinois is taking the polar vortex out for another spin this morning. Wind chills in the 20-below-zero range have led most area school districts to cancel classes for today.

 

However, the Springfield high school basketball city tournament will go on as scheduled tonight.

 

District 186 says contractual obligations with the Prairie Capital Convention Center don’t allow the tournament to be postponed.

 

A wind chill advisory is in effect through noon Friday.

 

Experts say frostbite and hypothermia can result if people are not properly protected against the bitter cold.
