The threat of below-zero temperatures and wind chills has schools in Tinley Park and around the south suburbs closing again for a second time this year. 

The National Weather Service has a wind chill warning on the area set from until 9 a.m. Wednesday, with wind chills expected to be between 30 and 45 degrees below zero.

The extreme cold will follow snowfall and strong winds Sunday night that could leave about another inch of snow on the ground, with winds gusting up to 45 mph.

Driving is expected to be extremely treacherous the next two days, with the cold and blowing snow leading to frozen roads and hampered visibility at times, especially in less developed areas.

Patch will continue to update with more closings as we hear about them.

Any word from NuWay (the garbage service for Tinley)? I know the last cold snap they delayed service for a day.

@TP Resident: Garbage pickups should be on the regular schedule. No announcement from NuWay that says otherwise. —Joe Vince, Tinley Park and Oak Forest Patch Editor

That's okay Harry, some people are ignorant and have no feelings for other peoples view points, that is part of an open forum, we do not know whom we are conversing with.
