Worst of winter storm appears to have moved on

UNDATED (AP) -- The worst of a winter storm that hit everywhere from the Great Lakes to New England appears to have moved on.

In Ohio, the National Weather Service says scattered lake effect snow showers in parts of the state should clear this morning.

Yesterday, the Cleveland Browns hosted the Buffalo Bills in near-blizzard conditions, and about 40 percent of flights were canceled at Cleveland Hopkins airport.

In Massachusetts, some roadways remain slick in the aftermath of yesterday's wintry mix of snow, sleet and rain. A number of school districts have called off classes today. Parts of southern New England could be hit with possible gusts higher than 40 miles per hour.

However, a winter storm warning remains in effect for northern Maine, where visibility was cut by snow blown by gusting wind.
