---- — CHANHASSEN, Minn. (AP) — A blizzard warning has been posted for northwest and west central Minnesota.

The National Weather Service is expecting widespread blowing snow will create near zero visibility on roadways Wednesday.

Fergus Falls, Barnesville, Pelican Rapids and Perham are among the school districts canceling classes. Other districts are delaying the start of school by an hour or two.

The deep freeze continues with high temperatures not moving above zero in some areas of the state. Overnight lows could drop to 30 below, without the wind chill.
