BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Several dozen schools from western New York to the North Country are closed or delaying the start of classes as the region is blasted by another round of snow and high winds.

WBEN-AM in Buffalo is reporting that winds gusting to nearly 40 mph are causing whiteout conditions in some areas during the Monday morning commute.

Most of the school closings and two-hour delays are in the Buffalo area, but others are reported in Chautauqua, Genesee, Niagara, Livingston, Orleans and Wyoming counties. In northern New York, the weather has delayed the start of classes in Jefferson, St. Lawrence, Oswego and Lewis counties.

The National Weather Service has issued a wind chill warning for most of western New York until late Tuesday morning.
