Winter Storm Snarls Roads, Closes Schools

By  | 

UNDATED (AP) - A winter storm moving east across the nation is
leaving behind slick roads and blankets of snow.

In Ohio, schools are delaying or canceling classes as strong winds and heavy snow move through the state. Some parts could get up to five inches of new snow. There are areas that already have as much as 15 inches on the ground from earlier storms.

Up to 16 inches has fallen on southeastern Michigan, extending a
winter vacation for students at dozens of schools.

Snow is also falling on the mountains of North Carolina.Forecasters say the area could get 10 inches, and lower mountain valleys will get three to six inches. And winds of up to 30 miles per hour will create a wind chill that's below zero.

In Tennessee, high temperatures are expected to be near freezing, and a winter storm warning has been posted for mountains along the eastern border of the state.
