-- A snowplow clears a street in Brooklyn Heights, New York, on Monday, Jan. 26, 2015. Winter Storm Juno closed schools across the Northeast, but New York City schools were scheduled to reopen Wednesday albeit with bus delays... Many schools throughout the Northeast were closed Tuesday and were expected to remain that way Wednesday, with school buses grounded as a result, as the so-called "Blizzard of 2015" continued to dump snow and even flood coastal areas. An additional 2 to 4 inches of snow were expected overnight in Boston with a Blizzard Warning continuing until 8 p.m. local time. The area already accumulated more than two feet of snow from Winter Storm Juno, which poured on seven states ranging from Rhode Island in the south to Maine in the north. All school sites in Boston Public Schools were closed Tuesday and again were scheduled to be closed Wednesday, according to the district's website. Schools were also closed throughout New Jersey on Tuesday due to snow and ice, said Trenton Public Schools, adding that GovChris Christie also closed all state offices. Trenton said classes were set to resume Wednesday... Providence Public Schools in Connecticut were scheduled to remain closed on Wednesday "for ongoing cleanup," the district website said, but district buildings were scheduled to be open. In Maine, Portland Public Schools said school was also to remain closed Wednesday "due to the prolonged severe snowstorm and difficulties in safely clearing roads and sidewalks" ... Brooklyn Heights,NY,USA -School Transportation News, by Ryan Gray -January 27, 2015:
