Lake Mills Community School and Northwood-Kensett, both in northern Iowa, canceled school today.

School across Iowa had delays and closings, but none were announced in Minnesota yet.

A winter weather advisory is in effect for the area until 6 p.m. today, and the National Weather Service said that roads could become covered in snow and potentially hazardous. Accumulations of 3 to 6 inches are likely. Saturday and Sunday may see a mix of freezing rain and snow.
