Snow was piling up Friday across all points of Maine, forcing dozens of schools, businesses and government offices to close for the day.

Snowfall totals have been reduced from their higher numbers because of the dry air that has moved across the state, according to the National Weather Service at Gray, though most parts of the state can expect at least a 4 to 6 inches of fresh snow to shovel.

The snow is expected to change to mixed precipitation this afternoon, causing roads to become very slick, reports warn.

In southern Maine, in Cumberland and York counties, snow has already started to change to mixed precipitation and ice.

The Maine turnpike has reduced speed to 45 mph from New Hampshire to Augusta, in an effort to stymie crashes.
