A January heat wave came to an end Monday across New England as a storm brought falling temperatures and heavy snow that closed scores of schools and caused road-closing traffic accidents.
Up to 10 inches fell in some areas from eastern New York to Maine. Temperatures had been in the 50s and as high as 60 last week, but the mercury began dropping on Sunday.
West Boylston, in central Massachusetts, had 10 inches of snow while totals across the state ranged from 3 to 8 inches.
At least 200 schools were closed in central and southern New Hampshire, and many more closed or delayed their start in eastern New York state.
