Many Area Schools Closed After 7 Inches of Snow Falls, Big Chill on the Way

You may want to stock up on some shorts for your kids… they’re going to need it when the school year extends well into June.


It’s yet another snow day for Springfield and most other school districts across Central Illinois, thanks to the latest winter storm to hit the area. Several weather spotters report snowfall totals of around 7 inches in Sangamon County.


There’s a chance for another inch of snow before the winter storm warning expires at noon. That will be followed by blowing and drifting snow… and then by a wind chill advisory as temperatures fall through the afternoon, leading to overnight wind chills as cold as 20-below zero.


As always, stay with 970 WMAY for the latest on the weather… and you can always get the latest closings and cancellations at
