TRUST CHUCK: Weather Authority says school will go on as scheduled

El Paso, Texas - A fake news story has been circling around Facebook over the last 24-hours indicating that El Paso area school kids may have a day off of school due to adverse weather on Thursday.

Sorry to say, kids, but that just isn't the case. The fake post seems to have originated from a local comedian who cited Chief Meteorologist Chuck DeBroder as the source of the weather news.



Though El Paso will have a dip in temperatures overnight, there will be no severe threats to our viewing area or anything that would warrant the closure or delay of schools.

Remember that Chuck DeBroder and NewsChannel 9 are the only Weather Authority. In the event that we have any school closures later in the winter, we'll keep you informed on!
