After Tuesday’s snow, sleet and a big-freeze up, Connecticut tries to get back on its feet after a nor’easter brought most of the state to halt.

But getting back on your feet could be slippery Wednesday morning after overnight temperatures in the teens froze the snow and sleet.

The National Weather Services the snow we received Tuesday won’t melt quickly. Temperatures Wednesday are expected to stay below freezing.

There’s a chance of isolated flurries before noon, then scattered snow showers, mainly between noon and 4 p.m.. Expect wicked wind chill values between 5 and 15 degrees. Wind gusts as high as 25 mph.

Many school districts have another day off today because local roads remain slick, some parking lots still unplowed and sidewalks need to be shoveled.

Bus stops are covered with piles of snow and streets are much narrower.

Not all schools, however, are closed. Some, like Stamford, have a two-hour delay.
