This morning, the Fairfield School District made an announcement that nearly every other town in southwestern Connecticut did last night: there's no school today, Feb. 5.
The flood of cancellations came in Tuesday evening as a significant winter storm bears down on the state.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for a "significant winter storm" that calls for a another round of up to 8 inches of heavy snow, as well as one-quarter of an inch of ice.
The warning went into effect at midnight and runs through to 7 p.m. Wednesday.
The snow is expected to fall throughout the day and then change over to sleet and freezing rain late Wednesday.
"Travel will be extremely dangers due to significant show and ice accumulations," the meteorologists stated in their report.
They added that the combination of snow and ice could knock down tree limbs and power lines.
