MADISON, Wis. -

Students across Wisconsin have a day off. Hundreds of schools canceled classes as a major snowstorm moved into the state.

Madison, Prairie du Chien, La Crosse and Tomah were among the many school districts closed Thursday.

More than 130 school closings were reported to Channel3000.com.

The National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning for some counties as winds of up to 45 mph were expected to create whiteout conditions. The State Patrol is advising against non-essential travel.

Ten inches of snow had already piled up in Osseo by early Thursday morning with 6 1/2 inches at Lomira.
