HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Airline flights were canceled and schools closed or opened late in Connecticut after a storm dumped up to a foot of snow in parts of the state.

Bradley International Airport reported nearly two dozen cancelled departing flights Wednesday morning, but most afternoon flights are still scheduled.

Metro-North officials say there are delays of up to 15 minutes on the New Haven, Harlem and Hudson rail lines because of the snow, while Connecticut Transit warned bus riders to expect some delays too.

Schools in Bridgeport, Hartford and New Haven were among those that closed Wednesday, while others opened 90 minutes to two hours late.

A wind chill advisory by the National Weather Service remains in effect for most of the state, with wind chills hitting 20 below zero or colder.
