More Snow, Then More Cold, In Northern New England

Residents of northern New England have gotten more snow and are preparing for a deep freeze to follow.   The National Weather Service said the snow that began falling Tuesday night tapered off by Wednesday, but not before creating slippery roads for commuters and delaying the start for lots of schools. Then it'll be followed by blustery weather and colder temperatures.
Meteorologist Andy Pohl called it a classic January storm. Up to 3 to 4 inches of snow on the coast of Maine and New Hampshire, and up to a foot of snow farther north. Some snow squalls were expected Wednesday night.
Colder air will take hold once the snow moves out. He said there will be widespread wind chills of 10 to 20 below by Thursday morning.
