Metro Detroit school closings for Tuesday, January 26

The year's first real snow event pulled into Southeast Michigan Tuesday morning as several inches of snow are starting to stack up as the sun comes up and dozens of schools that were open for in-person learning are being closed for the day.

To say Michigan has lacked considerable snow this year would be a bit of an understatement. By the end of January, we typically have had a foot of snow for the whole month but we've only had 3.7" of it. That's changing Tuesday as we could get 2-4 inches of snow in most of the area.

The latest closings will be posted at
