SUPERIOR, Wis. (AP) -- Blizzard-like conditions in far northern Wisconsin closed schools, slowed travel and knocked out electricity today as another blast of winter weather arrived.
Superior got about five inches of heavy, wet snow by midmorning along with winds gusting up to 50 mph.
Police were advising residents not to travel.
The UW-Superior campus was one of many places closed Friday.
Further south, Crandon, Laona and Butternut are among school districts that canceled classes.
The National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning for Douglas, Bayfield and Ashland counties, where up to a foot of snow was expected to fall by Friday night.
Police Sergeant Mark McGillis says the storm is a bit tough to take because the grass had already started to get green.
