MILWAUKEE (AP) - Many Wisconsinites headed back to work or school a day after a powerful storm left its mark on parts of the Badger State.

Snow removal crews continued their work early Wednesday as a winter storm warning issued by the National Weather Service expired. Forecasters expected light snow Wednesday, but nothing close to the fast-falling, heavy snow that brought some areas in Wisconsin to a standstill Tuesday.

Law enforcement agencies urged people to stay off the roads Tuesday as the storm pounded areas of western, central and northeastern Wisconsin. Thousands of students stayed home as a winter storm warning was issued for more than a dozen counties. About 9 inches of snow piled up in La Crosse and Monroe counties while nearly 11 inches fell in Iron County.

In Milwaukee, freezing rain and sleet made travel difficult.
