School districts across northeast Iowa have canceled classes because of an arctic blast that's producing some of the coldest temperatures ever recorded in the state. Classes at Iowa's three public universities are also canceled.

A Wind Chill Warning is in effect for the entire area through at least Thursday morning. High temperatures on Wednesday will range from -10° to -20°. Wind chills during the day will range from -35° to -45°, plunging to -40° to -60° by Thursday morning.
