Snow day for hundreds of upstate NY schools

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) Hundreds of schools across the western half of upstate New York are closed as a blizzard slams the region while many schools in eastern sections have called off classes because of dangerously low temperatures.

Schools from the state's far southwestern corner to Watertown near Lake Ontario's eastern end have cancelled classes Tuesday morning because of heavy snow and high winds causing blizzard conditions.

Some districts from Utica east to the Hudson Valley have closed schools or are delaying their opening by two hours because of temperatures in the single digits and wind chills well below zero.

The National Weather Service says the storms hitting areas along Lake Erie and Lake Ontario won't ease up until Wednesday, when the highs will approach 20 degrees in most upstate areas.
