    The state is digging out after another winter storm brought heavy snow and slippery driving conditions Saturday afternoon and evening. 

    The storm dropped up to 8 inches of snow in southeastern Connecticut and as little as 1.5 inches of snow around Hartford. 

    Take a look at our list of snow totals around the state.

    Today we're left with sunny skies but also gusty winds. Highs are in the 20s, with wind chills in the teens for most of the state.

    A few flurries could move in later this evening as a weak storm system passes to the south of Connecticut, but no accumulation is expected.

    State police responded to numerous accidents Saturday evening, including rollovers and spin-outs, and warned drivers to be careful in slick conditions.

    Conditions were especially bad on Interstate 95 northbound in the area of Waterford and New London, where traffic was down to one lane Saturday evening. Several cars were stuck in the snow as plows worked to clear the highway.

    Winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories were in effect through Saturday evening. Wind was also an issue, with gusts as high as 35 mph at times during the overnight as the storm moves out.

    Many municipalities issued parking bans, including New Haven, New London, Middletown, New Britain, Vernon and Farmington.

    The storm came just two days after parts of Connecticut saw more than a foot of snow from a two-wave storm.

    The next chance for snow will be Tuesday morning. A couple to a few inches are possible, according to Meteorologist Darren Sweeney.
