Light Snow Causes Slick Roads

Get the afternoon forecast from NBC Connecticut meteorologist Bob Maxon. (Published Thursday, Feb. 26, 2015)

Roads are slick as light snow falls across Connecticut. and there have been several spin-outs

A coating to 2 inches of accumulation is likely as a low- pressure system that created problems in the southern United States grazes us, but snow will taper off pretty quickly.

There have been crashes on Interstate 91 North in Cromwell between exits 20 and 21, and crashed on  Interstate 84 East and West in West Hartford.

There is also a 3-and-a-half mile backup on Interstate 95 in Greenwich, between exits 9 and 4.

The heaviest snow will go out to sea, just missing us, according to NBC Connecticut meteorologist Bob Maxon, but the light snow create some slick spots on the roads.

In addition to the light snow, the cold continues. The temperature for this time of year should be around 40 degrees, but we’ll only see highs today of around 20 degrees inland and 23 at the shore.
