KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) - A blizzard warning has come to an end for southeastern Wisconsin where a glancing blow from a central Midwestern storm dumped up to 10 inches of snow in some areas.

Dozens of schools in Kenosha, Racine and Walworth counties canceled classes Monday because of the dangerous travel conditions. The snowstorm also left about 5,000 We Energies customers without power, mostly in Pleasant Prairie, but power was nearly totally restored by late Monday afternoon.

While the far southeastern corner of the state was dealing with blowing and drifting snow, counties just to the north had no snow. But south of Wisconsin, up to a foot of snow buried the Chicago area and whiteout conditions stalled commuter traffic. Hundreds of air travelers trying to make it home after Thanksgiving were dealing with canceled flights.
