DETROIT (WWJ) – Thousands of students in metro Detroit have a day off from school Wednesday thanks to Mother Nature.
All public schools in Livingston, Lapeer and St. Clair counties are closed, along with the University of Michigan campus in Flint and St. Clair County Community College. A number of schools are also closed in Oakland County, Monroe County and Macomb County.
The closures come after a storm dumped several inches of snow on the region, leaving many roads hazardous for travel.
Forecasters say the snow is over but temperatures are expected to stay below freezing for the next few days.
Here’s the local forecast from the CBS Detroit weather team:
Wednesday — Cold, mostly cloudy. High 28F. Low 14F.
Thursday — Mostly cloudy with a stray flurry. High 31F. Low 17F.
