School Delays, Remote Learning as Wintry Mix Creates Icy Conditions in Parts of CT

NBCUniversal Media, LLC

A storm is currently bringing a mix of freezing rain and rain to the state and some schools are delayed while others have remote learning today. See the list here.

It's very icy on untreated surfaces in interior portions of the state.

Most of the state is just seeing cold rain, but the hill towns and areas in NW Connecticut have icy conditions.

Ice accretion will be minor with most towns only picking up a few hundredths of an inch, which isn't enough to bring down tree branches and power lines, but is enough to make for really slick road conditions.

Icing will transition to rain by late morning on Tuesday, although some icing could continue through the morning hours in northwestern Connecticut.

NBC Connecticut's Matt Austin talks about the icing situation in Torrington.

Day Pond State Park in Colchester is closed because of storm damage, according to the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection.

Crews are preparing for winter weather and power outages are a concern as a wintry mix heads to the state on Monday.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the entire state.
