Dixon Public Schools have announced that they will be closing Tuesday, January 29th through Thursday, January 31st, due to the dangerously cold weather threatening the Stateline area.

Expect highs in the negative teens and single digits Wednesday and Thursday, and overnight lows in the -20° to -30° range.

Factoring in the wind, we could see wind chills down into the -40° to -50° range.

The National Weather Service warns that in addition to slippery road conditions, dangerously cold winds could cause frostbite on exposed skin in as little as 5 minutes, and hypothermia or even death can result if appropriate precautions are not taken.
