Students off again amid Ohio's wind chill warnings

Published:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Some Ohio schools have another day of classes as wind chill advisories and warnings linger throughout much of the shivering state.

The National Weather Service had advisories in effect for much of Ohio until at least late Wednesday morning. Forecasters said wind chills could register around 20 degrees below zero near daybreak in some places, though temperatures were expected to rise a bit throughout the day.

Officials in Columbus canceled Wednesday classes at the state's largest school district. School officials in Akron, Canton, Cleveland, Youngstown and dozens of smaller districts around the state did the same.

The weather has given students from pre-kindergarten to college a break. Ohio State University, the University of Akron, Youngstown State University and Ohio University all canceled Tuesday classes but were expecting to reopen Wednesday.
