A coastal storm delivered a glancing blow to most of Maine, but it dumped up to 10 inches of snow in some northern and Down East regions Wednesday.

North Amity, in Aroostook County, reported 10 inches of snow and Topsfield, in Washington County, reported 9.5 inches, according to online reporting by the National Weather Service by late afternoon.

Some other snow totals: Grand Lake Stream, 7 inches; Ellsworth, 4 inches; Houton, 3.5 inches; East Machias, 3.5 inches.

Most parts of the state saw no snow or only an inch or so.

Spring may have arrived, but parts of northern Maine sometimes see snow into May.
