With wind chills well below 35 degrees, the decision to close schools Monday and Tuesday was clear cut.
That decision may not have been as easy for Wednesday.
The National Weather Service has issued a wind chill advisory calling for wind chills of 20 to 35 below until noon.
Area school administrators say a sustained wind chill of 30 to 35 below is the trigger for cancellation.
