BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Hundreds of schools from western New York to the Adirondacks have called off classes because of a storm that’s expected to dump 1 to 2 feet of snow across the region with winds gusting as high as 50 mph in some areas.

School district officials began announcing closures Tuesday ahead of a storm that has prompted the National Weather Service to issue a blizzard warning until early Thursday morning for an area stretching from New York’s southwest corner to the Lake Ontario shoreline in central New York.

Some schools in eastern New York are sending students home early Wednesday before driving conditions get hazardous.

Many upstate school districts had already used their allotted number of snow days before the latest cancellations.
