RE:                  URGENT WEATHER ADVISORY 

 

 

    In cooperation with the Maine School Management Association, I am forwarding this information to advise you of a severe weather advisory.

 

    The National Weather Service has extended the wind chill warning until 7:00 AM Friday.  The strong combination of northwest winds and well below zero temperatures will allow wind chill temperatures to fall to extremely dangerous values of 30 - 50 below zero by later tonight and continue through Friday.

    Weather related school cancellations or delays are, as always, a local decision.
