Updated noon Tuesday

Impending snowy weather has postponed the Long Range Planning Committee's public forum scheduled for tonight to next week.

The informational session will now be held Tuesday, Jan. 28, at Jonathan Law High School, starting at 7 p.m.

The diverse 31-member committee was formed this past summer to rethink the makeup of the school district in light of a declining student body.

Last December, all options on the table pointed to moving to a one high school district. Members also support reverting to the K-5, 6-8, 9-12 configuration.


Our original report follows.

A Winter Storm Warning has just been issued for Milford, as well as much of the rest of the region — with snowfall totals with tomorrow's storm expected to range from 6 to 10 inches here along the shoreline.

The National Weather Service's warning will go into effect at noon on Tuesday and run through to early Wednesday morning. 

"Snowfall will begin late Tuesday morning and will continue through Tuesday night, tapering off early Wednesday morning," the weather service meteorologists state in their warning report. "The heaviest snowfall will occur Tuesday afternoon and evening."

The periods of heavy snow will significantly reduce visibility, making travel on the slick roads even more difficult. 

The storm's arrival Tuesday will also usher bitterly cold air in the area, along with wind gusts of up to 35 miles per hour. Wind chills are expected to reach as low as -10 degrees by late Tuesday night.
