BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Some schools and government offices are closing early ahead of another round of lake-effect snow storms expected to dump 1 to 2 feet of snow on parts of upstate New York.

Students in several districts north of Syracuse are being sent home early, while after-school activities in the Buffalo area are cancelled Wednesday afternoon. Buffalo City Hall and other government offices are also closing early.

The National Weather Service has issued lake-effect snow warnings for a five-county area in western New York and a three-county region near Lake Ontario’s eastern end. The storms started Wednesday afternoon and will continue into Thursday morning, dumping more than a foot of snow south of Buffalo and as much as 2 feet in the Tug Hill region north of Syracuse.

Overnight temperatures will dip below zero in some areas this week.
