ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Snow, sleet, and freezing rain have made roads hazardous across the Great Lakes into New England and closed hundreds of schools.
The National Weather Service posted winter storm warnings and ice storm warnings from Pennsylvania into Maine and winter weather advisories were issued for parts of Michigan and Ohio.
Michigan police blame three traffic deaths on ice-covered highways and some schools are closed.
Many school districts have called off classes or are opening late across New York state, where about 2 inches of snow has fallen north of Albany.
Up to a foot of snow is possible in Vermont and hundreds of schools are closed there and in New Hampshire.
Schools and colleges across Massachusetts also have closed or delayed openings
