While it may be a time for victory dance for the children, for the worried parents it is going to be a tough task to track whether schools will have full closures or early dismissals.
The weather services have announced that the eastern half of the United States will be facing severe snow. As per reports from the National Weather Service, there is a 100 percent chance of snow hitting several districts on Tuesday and a 70 percent chance it will continue into the night.
"The heaviest snow is expected during the midday and afternoon hours," NWS stated. The heavy snow will make driving dangerous, they said, advising only to travel if it is an emergency.
