A wintry storm system isn't being very kind to some Nebraska roads and schools, and it's headed into southern Minnesota and Wisconsin.

A layer of ice and nearly a foot of snow made some Nebraska highways treacherous today. School openings were delayed in Nebraska and southern Minnesota.

The National Weather Service posted winter weather advisories covering sections of Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota and northern Iowa.

The weather service said up to 4 inches of snow was possible across southern Minnesota into Wisconsin.

In western South Dakota, utility crews are still working to restore electrical service knocked out by a blizzard last week. An estimated 1,800 customers of six electric cooperatives have been without power since that storm.
