Schools again closed across West Virginia amid extreme cold

January 31, 2019

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Public schools in West Virginia are closed for a second straight day as dangerously frigid weather continues to blanket the state.

Dozens of county school districts called off classes for Thursday. Some college campuses also planned to remain shut.

Forecasters say breezy conditions again will send wind chill readings below zero, causing frostbite on exposed skin in a matter of minutes. Emergency management officials say at least 90 warming centers are open statewide.

Temperatures are expected to rebound above freezing on Friday and could approach 60 degrees (15.5 degrees Celsius) on Sunday.
