Heavy Snow Snarls Evening Commute

Heavy Snow Snarls Evening Commute

Accidents snarled traffic on I-91 in Wallingford during a snowy evening commute April 4.

Heavy snow is falling across northern Connecticut, while an icy mix is falling in southern Connecticut.

Traffic was at a near crawl in places like I-91 North in Wallingford, where an accident took down a light pole near exit 15.

Crashes have been reported statewide.  A crash by exit 16 on I-84 West in Middlebury caused heavy delays all the way back Waterbury.  The crash was cleared, but the backup continued, according to state police.

State police urged drivers to take precautions as they head out on the roads Monday evening.

The snow will come to an end between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. from west to east.

Up to a half foot of snow is possible in northeast Connecticut by the time all is said and done.

Other parts of inland Connecticut should end up with several fresh inches of snow, on top of what fell this morning.

Any water and slush will freeze up tonight and make for slippery travel through tomorrow morning, even though the snow is ending this evening.
