Residents of northern New England were enduring another messy commute with a combination of rain, freezing rain and snow.

Many schools were canceled Wednesday after a night of freezing rain caused icy roads in southern and coastal areas. Up to a half-foot of snow had piled up elsewhere by Wednesday morning. In New Hampshire, more than 22,000 customers remained without power by noon.

National Weather Service meteorologist Tom Hawley said a second round of precipitation came in the afternoon before the storm cleared out. He said winds also picked up.

The Wednesday storm was the second part of a one-two punch that began Tuesday. Snowfall caused a slow commute and some accidents Tuesday morning. It was slow going again Wednesday, but there were no reports of major problems.
