Dropping Temps Friday Night Causing Icing in Parts of CT

NBCUniversal Media, LLC

After a day of rain across most of the state, temperatures fell late Friday afternoon.

Those dropping temperatures have raised concerns about icing in areas of Connecticut.

The storm system brought light to moderate rain to the state Thursday night.

Before daybreak, temperatures dropped and icy spots started to develop in parts of the state. In Norfolk, tree branches were covered in ice.

The Connecticut Department of Transportation said crews are watching the conditions closely, but all the rain washed away the residual salt. Once the changeover starts, the DOT will be able to put down treatments.

They are urging drivers to take it slow on the roads tonight and give their plows plenty of room to work.
