MILWAUKEE -- Sheriff's officials in at least one Wisconsin county were advising motorists to stay off the roads as a winter storm made travel dangerous and closed schools in eastern Wisconsin.

Milwaukee, Kenosha, Racine Unified and Sheboygan school districts were among those canceling classes Wednesday as snow continued to fall.

The storm that paralyzed parts of the nation's midsection is expected to dump up to a foot of snow in counties near Lake Michigan and up to 6 inches in counties away from the lake.

Sheriff's deputies in Sheboygan County issued a no travel advisory after drifts of at least 4 feet were reported. In the City of Milwaukee, more than 250 plows worked to clear the roads. The heavy snow caused power outages in the Milwaukee area. We Energies crews are working to restore power to about 600 customers.
