The Fall sports season was moved to Winter, as Illinois football is set to begin in February, but now there will be even more of an overlap.

Swimming and bowling were already in season, but with Governor Pritzker's announcement, the IHSA has suspended those sports until further notice. Basketball has not started in the state of Illinois, but could be pushed back until after January. 

IHSA Executive Director Craig Anderson said the board will on on Thursday to, "continue plotting out potential paths for IHSA sports through the remainder of the school year."

Governor Pritzker was invited to Thursday's meeting, but the invitation was declined.

Our snowy, slick start to the day gave way to a gloomy, gray and chilly afternoon throughout the Tri-State. After only reaching temperatures in the mid 30s early in the day, we will see temperatures gradually tumble back down into the upper 20s by 10 o’clock. Despite the gradual clearing conditions overnight (which would normally lead too a much colder morning), the mercury is expected to remain relatively stable into early Tuesday morning. The return of a southerly wind flow overnight will help keep the temperatures milder as we head towards daybreak.
