The Clarksville Montgomery County School System has cancelled all classes for Tuesday due to brutal cold and extremely low wind chills of up to 20 degrees below zero.
Staff development that had been scheduled for Monday has been postponed until Tuesday and the return to school after the holiday break has been postponed until Wednesday.
Updates will be issued as needed for any changes in weather that impact the schools.
The forecast calls for rain to flash freeze as an arctic cold front sweeps across the area early this evening, followed by snow. The combination of icy and snow-covered roads will make travel extremely hazardous. Temperatures are not expected to rise above freezing until Wednesday so the roads may stay treacherous.
