Snow came down quickly in parts of the state this morning, creating a traffic nightmare and causing several schools to open late because of the weather.

There was a narrow band of 1 to 4 inches of snow along Interstate 91 and to the west of the highway, including New Haven, while Litchfield County got up to an inch of sleet and ice and the eastern part of the state is getting no accumulation.

There were several crashes this morning and AAA responded to around 850 calls for service as of 9:30 a.m.
