District 117, 118, 128, as well as Stagg High School, have announced closings for Tuesday, according to emergencyclosingcenter.com. Shepard High School dismissed students at 1 p.m. and will open at 9 a.m. on Wednesday.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning that is in effect through midnight Tuesday. Light snow is expected tonight and will become heavier Tuesday morning and throughout the day. Daytime accumulation could be 3-5 inches.
We can expect as much as seven to ten inches total through Tuesday night, according to the forecast. Accumulation could reach one to two inches an hour, making snow removal difficult.
The NWS also reports that winds might reach 25 to 30 mph, increasing the possibility of large snow drifts.
