FIRST ALERT: Snow creates slippery conditions, cancels school

First Alert Forecast: What to expect 2/9

It is Tuesday, Feb. 9, 2016.

Today will be the coldest day of the week. Overnight snow showers will leave a dusting over parts of the Heartland, which could make the roads a little slippery. That snow will continue into the morning and taper off later in the day. We likely won't see temperatures rise above freezing, and a breezy wind will make it feel even colder. FIRST ALERT: More snow may be headed our way for late Wednesday.
