Weather closes hundreds of schools in upstate NY

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) Hundreds of schools across upstate New York are closed and authorities are advising against any unnecessary travel as a snow storm moves across the region.

Schools from the Finger Lakes to the Adirondacks and the Hudson Valley have called off classes Wednesday, while a few others are delaying their start by two hours.

Morning commuters are traveling at reduced speeds while navigating snow-covered roads and highways, while Interstate 84 between the Pennsylvania and Connecticut borders is closed to tandem tractor-trailers.

Gov. Andrew activated the state Emergency Operation Center Tuesday night to monitor the storm, and he's asking people to avoid unnecessary travel.

The National Weather Service is predicting snowfall totals of six to 16 inches by the time the storm ends Wednesday night.
