All schools in the Francophone Northeast school district are closed Wednesday after a storm that brought snow to the north and snow and a few hours of freezing rain to central areas of New Brunswick.

Environment Canada has yet to update the amounts that fell, but the storm was expected to bring 25 centimetres of snow to the north and between 10 and 20 to some southern areas.

According to the New Brunswick government's 511 service, roads across the province are fully or partly snow-covered Wednesday morning.

Drivers could also find  visibility reduced on certain roads, according to 511, mainly in the northern half of the province.

RCMP tweeted on Wednesday morning that Highway 15 near Portage, in the southeast, was closed because of a collision.
