Snow, cold temperatures and the prospect of blowing snow have prompted Buffalo Public School officials to close city schools again Wednesday, spokeswoman Elana Cala reported Tuesday night. Numerous other school districts across Western New York have looked at the weather forecast and have taken the same action.

The Buffalo Board of Education also canceled its regular meeting Wednesday night. Cala reported that it will be rescheduled next week at a time to be announced.

All of the eight school districts in Genesee County announced they would be closed Wednesday following the declaration of a county-wide travelers' advisory Tuesday evening. The Genesee County Sheriff's Office told motorists to avoid all unnecessary travel in the county for 24 hours.
