BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Schools across western New York are closed and others in the Finger Lakes region and North Country are delaying the start of classes because of single-digit temperatures and sub-zero wind chills.

Most schools in the Buffalo area and school districts in neighboring counties have called off classes Tuesday as temperatures hover around zero and wind gusts topping 20 mph drive the wind chill to 25 below zero. The latest arctic blast to hit the region comes on the 37th anniversary of the Blizzard of 1977.

Many schools farther east in central and northern New York are opening two hours late.

The National Weather Service has issued wind chill advisories or warnings for the region stretching from the state’s southwest corner to Plattsburgh, near the Canadian border in northern New York.
