While Boston's Logan International Airport remains open, there are more than 600 school districts in Massachusetts that canceled classes Friday, Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency spokesman Peter Judge said.
Although travel delays have not been significant, transportation officials are advising commuters to give themselves extra time to get to their destination.
