Schools in Durham and Middlefield will be closed on Friday because of the "potentially historic" winter storm headed our way.
Superintendent Susan Viccaro announced the decision Thursday afternoon and said the district will also be closed to any activity on Saturday.
Forecasters expect the storm to dump between 16-24 inches of snow on the area beginning Friday morning.
A blizzard warning has been issued for the entire state of Connecticut and high winds could result in widespread power outages, officials say.
