KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — Bitter cold temperatures have prompted some West Michigan school districts to close Monday.
The closed districts in southwest Michigan include (but are not limited to) Battle Creek Public Schools, Kalamazoo Public Schools, Paw Paw Public Schools and Portage Public Schools. Farther north, Grand Rapids Christian Schools, Grandville Public Schools and Wyoming Public Schools have canceled classes.
Several of the districts cited frigid temperatures when they called off classes.
Storm Team 8 said temperatures were expected to dip as low as -10 in Grand Rapids, -11 in Kalamazoo and Battle Creek, and -15 in Coldwater. The coldest temperatures were expected around sunrise. A wind chill advisory is in effect for all of the Lower Peninsula except Berrien County.
Though it will be very cold, snow is not in the forecast for Monday morning.
Below-zero temperatures were also recorded across Michigan early Sunday morning.
