The Latest on a winter storm dumping up to a foot of snow on northern New England (all times local):

2:55 p.m.

The National Weather Service says some parts of Vermont likely will see a foot of snow before a winter storm subsides.

The weather service says Tuesday’s snow probably will linger into Wednesday in some parts of the Green Mountain State. The town of Ludlow already had almost 11 inches by 2:30 p.m.

Snow also was accumulating in New Hampshire and Maine, but parts of those states were beginning to see a switch over to cold rain. The National Weather Service updated a winter weather advisory notice to include the southern Maine counties of Cumberland and York.

Randolph, New Hampshire, had half a foot of snow. The service says much of Maine has had less than 3 inches.

10 a.m.

Roads are slick and the vehicle crash count is up as northern New England copes with some heavy snow, with some places forecast for up to a foot and others expecting it to turn to rain.

Heavy snow was falling in parts of Vermont, Maine and New Hampshire on Tuesday. Hundreds of schools have closed and there have been some accidents reported. Speeds were lowered on highways. New Hampshire state troopers cleared at least six highway accidents by 10 a.m. There was no word of major injuries.

Meteorologist James Brown says most areas will experience a changeover to rain.

He says greater snow tallies are expected inland, with up to 6 inches of snow in central and southern New Hampshire, and up to a foot across northwestern Maine.
