Wednesday will be another day off school for thousands of Akron-Canton children.

From Medina to Tallmadge to Canton, more than 600 Northeast Ohio schools had canceled classes by 7 a.m. Wednesday, with Akron Public Schools among the districts making the early call.

A wind-chill warning remains in effect for northern Ohio until noon.

The National Weather Service, which covers Summit, Cuyahoga, Medina, Portage, Stark and Wayne counties, warns that wind-chill readings of 15 to 30 degrees below zero will be common in the area. It advised anyone who must go outside to make sure that all skin is covered, as frostbite could affect exposed skin within 10 minutes.

Wednesday’s high will struggle to reach 13 degrees under mostly sunny skies.

Pet owners are advised to bring their animals indoors to protect them from the cold.

The weather service, not typically known for its sense of humor, says “a relative heat wave will move in” with highs in the 30s by Saturday.
