It’s another very cold morning in Central Illinois… but in spite of that, most area students are headed back to school today.
Air temperatures are colder this morning than yesterday, when classes were cancelled. But the wind chill isn’t quite as severe. And conditions are expected to improve even more by this afternoon.
Springfield school officials say the afternoon forecast is a big part of their decision on whether to open schools or not, since kids are actually more likely to be stranded outside after taking the bus home at the end of the day than they are in the morning.
A handful of districts are still closed today… you can see our list at wmay.com.
