Storm brings return to winter conditions

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (AP) _ After a stretch of spring-like temperatures, winter is returning to Wisconsin and Minnesota in a big way. 

A blizzard warning is posted in southeastern Minnesota with a winter storm warning in western Wisconsin. Accumulating snow and strong winds are creating low visibility and dangerous travel conditions. 

About 8 inches of snow is already on the ground in Eau Claire and Trempealeau counties. Dozens of schools in both states have canceled classes Friday. A foot of snow or more is expected to pile up by Friday night in west central Wisconsin and eastern Minnesota. 

The Minnesota Department of Transportation is warning travelers to stay home or plan ahead.
