More Snow Caused Problems During Morning Commute

Residents across Connecticut are still digging out from the Blizzard of 2015, but already more snow is falling, which caused school delays and a tricky Friday morning commute. 

A burst of snow between late Thursday night and Friday morning will bring an inch or two to most of the state and up to 4 inches to the northern hills, according to Chief First Alert Meteorologist Brad Field.

Many schools are delayed this morning, while others are closed.

Flurries are expected to continue through lunchtime on Friday and will taper off by the afternoon. Temperatures are starting out in the upper-20s through mid-30s around the state tomorrow but are expected to drop as the afternoon wears on.

Saturday will be cold and mostly sunny, with strong winds and highs around 17 degrees. Another storm system will be moving in on Sunday night into Monday and we could see more snow developing on Thursday.

New London Public Schools are closed again Friday as the southeast corner continues to clean up from the Blizzard of 2015. U.S. Senators Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy will be traveling to this part of the stat on Friday to discuss snow removal efforts, preparation for future storms and federal assistance programs. The senators head to Norwich on Friday morning and then to New London in the afternoon.

In Willimantic, a parking ban remains in effect until Feb. 6 because of all the snow.

Other school systems have also altered their schedules on Friday.

You can also sign up to receive text or email alerts when your business school district announces a cancellation or delay.
