DETROIT (AP) -- Detroit's public schools are among hundreds across Michigan that are closing Monday because of the heavy snow and bitter cold forecast for the state.
Oakland University in Auburn Hills said Sunday that it's closing classes Monday. All public schools in Livingston County have shut for the day as well.
The closings are extending into Michigan's Upper Peninsula, where snow and cold are more par for the course. The North Dickinson schools will stay shut, and the Florence schools will remain closed Tuesday as well.
The National Weather Service has predicted up to 15 inches of snow in southern Michigan south of Interstate 94, followed by temperatures dropping as low as minus 15.
