BOSTON (AP) — New Englanders are preparing for another messy day of snow as they welcome spring's unseasonable arrival.

Forecasts call for as much as 16 inches of snow in parts of northern New England through Wednesday morning, bringing slippery road conditions. Snow is expected to taper off in other locations.

National Weather Service forecaster John Cannon in Gray, Maine, calls it "the real deal — the heavy, wet snow." He says travel will be "treacherous" into the morning.

Snow blasted the Northeast on Tuesday, where some places received over a foot of snow. It also socked other parts of the northern U.S., with as much as 2 feet forecast in parts of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
