[November 17, 2008]  (AP)  Officials say a blast of cold air has spread snow across parts of the Great Lakes region, with some places getting more than a foot.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol says snowy roads have caused numerous accidents. Several school districts in northwestern Pennsylvania have closed or are planning to delay classes because of the slippery roads.

More than 20 inches of so-called "lake-effect" snow fed by moisture from the lakes was reported Monday morning in western and north-central New York state and the National Weather Service said up to 14 inches had fallen at Erie, Pa.

More snow is forecast at Erie through Tuesday.

The weather service says up to a foot of snow also is possible in parts of Michigan's Upper Peninsula along the shore of Lake Superior.
