South Bend Schools says on their website that the administration building will remain open on Friday. The makeup day in South Bend will be May 22, 2015.
The roads in South Bend are quite bad — even the main ones — with whiteouts in some areas due to blowing snow. The National Weather Service is reporting that some areas are experiencing snow drifts that are blocking roads.
The area could see more snow overnight with high winds and wind chills below zero. The NWS says that lake effect snow is expected to kick in tomorrow morning for some areas, especially north of the Indiana Toll Road.
