The latest snowstorm to hit New England sent cars sliding and caused hundreds of school closings.
The National Weather Service says the storm that arrived Tuesday night brought up to 6 inches of snow to parts of the region by Wednesday afternoon. Some places could see a couple more inches.
Steady snow fell in parts of Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine, creating a slippery commute for motorists. It turned into lighter snow by midmorning. There were no reports of injuries.
The storm was part of a weather system stretching from Maine to Florida.
The snowfall might not stick around. Officials are predicting another warmup for the weekend, with temperatures climbing into the 40s in New England.
