According to the National Weather Service, a coastal storm is set to develop along the Southeast coast and move northward bringing heavy rains, wet snow and gusty winds to parts of the Northeast region that was pummeled by Superstorm Sandy last week.

    One person was killed in a one-car crash around noontime in Lebanon and police are trying to determine if weather was a factor.

    A female was driving the car when it overturned on Clubhouse Road between Oliver and Bascon roads, according to state police. Her name has not been released.

    Snow started falling late morning and state police have reported several additional crashes on Interstates 84, 91 and Route 9.  They have all been minor, officials said.

    In Wallingford, schools officials sent an alert to parents that children might be getting home from school later than usual. They said they did not expect the snow to be as heavy as it is and must wait until public work crews clear the roads to get the buses through. 

    Weather is also affecting air traffic.

    Bradley Airport is open, but reporting 25 cancellations throughout Wednesday.

    Some flights are also canceled for Thursday morning because planes will not be able to make it into Bradley tonight. 

    American Airlines issued an alert in advance of the storm and said they were suspending service as of 3 p.m. for all the New York-area airports. 

    If you are planning to fly or planning to transport someone to or from the airport, call the airlines to check on the flight status or check the status online.

    Weather is also affecting the rails.

    Customers on the Danbury branch of Metro-North should expect 60-minute delays because of slippery rail conditions.

    State police ask anyone who witnessed the fatal Lebanon crash to call state police troop K at 860-537-7500 and refer to case number 1200632956.
