MONTPELIER, Vt. — A late-season snowstorm that could dump up to 2 feet of snow in parts of Vermont is making roads slick across the state.

A tractor trailer truck slid into a home in Proctor Wednesday morning and two other tractor trailers went off the road on interstates 89 and 91.

Scores of schools are closed and road crews are waiting to push aside what forecasters say could be up to 2 feet of snow in some areas.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for all of Vermont through 8 p.m. Thursday.

Travel is expected to get treacherous with gusty winds that will produce near white-out conditions Wednesday evening.

Officials at the Burlington International Airport say many Thursday morning flights out of the airport are being cancelled.
