As snow continued to pour in Northern Virginia on Tuesday afternoon, parents and students began wondering whether the storm would impact class schedules Wednesday, Jan. 22.

Remaining snow may not be the only issue for students. The current forecast for Wednesday morning in Falls Church and Fairfax suggests very cold temperatures as students are expected to begin the trip to school. The temperature could be 5 degrees, but a wind chill will make it feel like -14 degrees.
