DETROIT (AP) — Poor weather conditions due to heavy snowfall have prompted officials at Wayne State University in Detroit to cancel late afternoon and evening classes.

The school says that as of 4 p.m. Thursday all classes are cancelled, but the university remains open.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for some parts of southeastern Michigan until 4 a.m. Friday.

About three inches of snow or more was expected to accumulate during daylight hours Thursday with another four inches or more coming after nightfall.

Some cities have declared snow emergencies to prohibit parking on streets.
